Certainly, this is the Son of God

“Then came Jesus forth, wearing the crown of thorns, and the purple robe. And Pilate saith unto them, Behold the man! When the chief priests therefore and officers saw him, they cried out, saying, Crucify him, crucify him. Pilate saith unto them, Take ye him, and crucify him: for I find no fault in him” John 19:5-6.

“And it was about the sixth hour, and there was a darkness over all the earth until the ninth hour. And the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple was rent in the midst. And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, he said, Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit: and having said thus, he gave up the ghost. Now when the centurion saw what was done, he glorified God, saying, Certainly this was a righteous man” Luke 23:44-47.

Certainly, this is the Son of God…

For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life” (John 3:16).

Love in Action

“Then saith Jesus unto them, All ye shall be offended because of me this night: for it is written, I will smite the shepherd, and the sheep of the flock shall be scattered abroad. But after I am risen again, I will go before you into Galilee” (Matthew 26:31-32).

“And He began to teach them that the Son of Man must suffer many things and be rejected by the elders and the chief priests and the scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again” (Mark 8:31).

“And Jesus answered them, saying, “The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified. Truly, truly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit. He who loves his life loses it, and he who hates his life in this world will keep it to life eternal” (John 12:23-25).

We all know the “Easter” weekend is upon us. In our home we like to call it Resurrection Sunday. This week, I have settled into the four Gospels; reading through the accounts has been a glorious eye opener. I love when the Holy Spirit does that, don’t you?

We see, once again, a clear picture into Jesus’ heart and His love for His disciples. In the garden, he sweat drops of blood. When is the last time you or I did that because we were in such agony over our sin or a situation?

Despite the physical responses Christ’s body was going through, He still loved, cared, and taught the disciples. Even in His personal suffering, yes, we know He knew it was His God-mission, the weight of knowing what was about to happen was still present. Jesus knew it. God knew it. Sin is ugly!

In these verses above, we see Christ in love–action. Christ took the time to explain…to walk the disciples through what was about to happen. He continued to prepare them for that day, that night and for the tomorrow’s to come; for ultimately their fulfillment of their God-mission.

Did those disciples “get it” at that moment in time, or did they hear the words and not comprehend those spoken words? I think you know the answer to that question. But don’t we do and act the very same way? Yet, Jesus loved them…

Do you know He is just the same with you today.

  • He died.
  • He lives.
  • He loves….YOU!

When You Just Can’t…He Can!

God listens even when our words aren’t speakable, when we have no words…all He asks is that we come.

  • “Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. And he that searcheth the hearts knoweth what is the mind of the Spirit, because he maketh intercession for the saints according to the will of God. And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose” Romans 8:26-28.
  • Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls” Matthew 11:28-29.

Are you struggling today, friend? If so, go! Go be with God. Sit in His silence and allow Christ to intercede for you, but listen. Just maybe, maybe words may come. If not, it’s okay. God understands, but keep coming! Keep coming!!! God loves you!

Whose Plan Are You On?

You know, this is a really good question to ask ourselves!

I can hear our children’s voices praying right now, “Break my heart with what breaks Yours.” In Jesus name, Amen.

Is this your prayer?

  • Is your heart breaking alongside with your Heavenly Father’s? His heart is for you.
  • Does the sin in your life discussed you or do you find yourself enjoying it, desiring more of it?

God has no plan B. God’s plan is plan A.

Marvel Not!

  • What is he ‘hiding’ from you?
  • Sin will take you further than you ever thought or dreamed you’d go. Is it worth it?


And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light” (2 Corinthians 11:14).

Deception is his master key.

Do You Love God?

When the active choice is made to be in tuned with God with the act of willful obedience simply because we love Him, this, this is true love. Love that stands on the solid ground of God rather than self.

God’s Standard

  • “Let my sentence come forth from thy presence; let thine eyes behold the things that are equal” Psalm 17:2 (KJV).
  • “Let my judgement come forth from Your presence; let Your eyes look with equity” Psalm 17:2 (NASB).

Tongue Power

The other night, during family devotions, we discussed the unbridled and bridled tongue; its power to please God and bless others or the power to curse God and dishonor others.

Your tongue is just that, yours. My tongue, you guessed it, mine. Friends, we have a choice. The question is, we will be doers of the Word and not hearers only…deceiving ourselves (James 1:22)?

Allow me to repeat the verse we read:

“If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man’s religion is vain” James 1:26.

Vital to Understand the Difference

This is so vital to understand the difference in our life. God’s Word is Truth; that is what stands.

As Paul exhorted Timothy, I repeat to you, “Stick to the Word, friend. Stick to the Word!
