The one thing that is scary and devastating idea men are facing is death. Many are afraid and not ready to think and deal with it. Yet this is a one thing nobody can escape. What if a very important to you will go through this process? What would his death be means to you?
What death implies to you? Death means an end of something. It might be an end for a reason. It could bring a good or bad effects. There might be an end of thing, of a relationship, of a contract or a commitment and even life itself, it happen sometimes not to harm you. Negatively, an end of something can caused sorrow, heartbreak, and even downfall in you. But remember the words in Romans 8:28 “and we know that to them that love the Lord all things work together for good, even to them that are called according to his purpose.”
In here was a man( not an ordinary one) who died for a reason. A man who came from a paradise, has a royalty kind of life. Yes, Jesus who has everything yet in His great love forsaken it all just to rescue human race. “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth on Him should not perish but have eternal life. For God sent not the Son into the world to judge the world; but that the world should be saved through Him.” John 3:16-17
Jesus knows once this task He received would start, it would be filled with suffering and misery. Did you wonder why He never turned back and argued? What if when greatly suffered He then fought and went back to heaven? What if with every whipped, and nails sank in His body, He then used His power against those people? What if He called heavenly angels to fight against those who inflicted pain on Him? Did you wonder what would happen if all these took place? You will never be happy if it did occur because your complete eternal damnation is sure without any means of salvation. People in debt and miserable situations has no way out. Those in pain, in chaos, in sickness and enslaved by sin has no hope and freedom. It will make the enemy satan rejoicing then. But praise be to God, Jesus conquered it all! There’s no greater love portrayed than Jesus love.
” Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.” John 15: 13
“Looking unto Jesus the author and the perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising shame and hat sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” Hebrews 12:2
Is His death not enough for you to believe, surrender and give your life to Him, trust and have faith on Him? Jesus has given His life and take the punishment instead of you deserve to have it! What more could Jesus do? His death means an end of the dominion and enslavement of satan. If the cross is not enough for you, His love will do everything to help you understand. As what the father of a prodigal son did, waited for him to come home and ran to welcome him. Until now He still waiting for you to come home.
” and he arose and came to his father but while he was yet afar off, his father saw him and was moved with compassion and ran and fell on his neck and kiss him… for this my son was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found and they began to be merry… but it was meet to make merry and be glad: for this thy brother was dead and is alive again and was lost and is found.” Luke 15: 20,24,32
