He was beaten unrecognizable to men and crucified unjustly for us. He allowed US to do it without a word spoken, so that we could be reconciled to the Father, our eternal home...so that we would not have to pay the penalty for our own sin.
Oh beloved, today, with a zealous heart, I compassionately call you, to lay down
the weapons of bitterness, jealousy and revenge...
the cloaks of regret, unworthiness and shame...
and the unwillingness to forgive.
In their stead, receive from Him the priceless free gift of forgiveness, freedom and everlasting life. Receive a beautiful robe of righteousness to cover even the darkest of deeds. Be bound no longer in chains of fear of punishment; for He said the Father sent Him
"to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
to proclaim freedom for the captives
and release from darkness for the prisoners"
Choose Him this day Beloved. Choose love this day. Do not be discouraged or dismayed, because Sunday's Coming...
