Matthew 20:28: Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.

I John 2:2 And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.

Hebrews 10: 5-6
Wherefore when he came into the world, he saith, Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, but a body hast thou prepared me:
In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin thou hast had no pleasure.

Hebrews 10:8-14
Above when he said, Sacrifice and offering and burnt offerings and offering for sin thou wouldest not, neither hadst pleasure therein; which are offered by the law;
Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. He took away the first, that he may establish the second.
By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.
And every priest stood daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins:
But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right of God;
From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool.
For by one offering he hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified.

Jesus became the pure sinless sacrifice for sin to redeem us from the penalty attached to this destructive element against humanity. Of ourselves we could not find the right cure or substance to redeem us from our sins. Yet Jesus came and offered Himself once for all so that we might be delivered from the consequences and destructive nature of sin.

Although the individual who comes to Christ may have spent many years in sin, because of the sacrifice of Jesus’ body, that person can be cleansed and made whole without any questions being asked.

This is why Jesus died. This is why there is holy week. This is why there is the Communion Table, and why we should be willing  participants in this ceremonial time of remembrance. Jesus died for you too!

How do you feel when this time of holy week comes to mind? Does it hold any significance to you, which makes you want to do something in return for Christ considering what He did for you on Calvary? What does holy week means to you? Think about it?

Take a moment and read Isaiah 53:1-10 from the KJV. Ask the Holy Spirit to show you things which you had not thought about before. Think about the rejection of someone who came to rescue you. Do you still reject Jesus Christ? Would you still reject Him after what you have read? Again, what does holy week means to you?

For  those who are still living in sin, have you thought about your soul? What would you give for your soul? How much do you think your soul costs Jesus Christ when He died on Calvary? 

Oh, we will never be able to comprehend the length, depth, breath, or height of what Jesus suffered on the Cross for us. Therefore, why not take up your cross today and follow Him in thanksgiving and saving your soul from eternal separation from Him. You have today, but can you be sure of tomorrow? Receive Jesus Christ today and ask Him to come into your heart.

Holy Week – A Time of Reflection

Do You love Jesus?

Each person has a different opinion of holy week. However, to the believer in Christ, this time has significant meaning and holds powerful lessons, which bring each person to a place of reflection and thoughtfulness.

In Luke 22:15-20 we read of the inception of the Lord’s Supper or Holy Communion. It was in this particular week that it was instituted when Jesus asked that we keep this ceremony in remembrance of Him.

Luke 22:19  –  And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying, This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me. Each time we take the Communion it should indeed remind us of the sacrifice Jesus made to deliver us from sin.

Holy week reminds us of Jesus’ sufferings and humiliation from those who hated Him, and who could not understand His teachings. Jesus’ character was unlike what mankind had ever known. It was unique, which made those who criticized Him marvel concerning the way He treated [everyone]; none barring. This time should really cause every believer to think about his or her attitude towards people who maybe of a different religious belief and other differences. Since Jesus gave His life for the entire world, should we not love one another too?

In this time of pain and emotional turmoil, should we not demonstrate the love of God in sincerity and truthfulness to honour what Jesus did so many years ago which this week reminds us of?  Jesus’ love spreads to every sinner who  will accept it.

It was during holy week that Jesus was betrayed by one of His followers. Even though Jesus knew of the betrayal, He continued doing good to all who came to Him. The character of Jesus can only be emulated through the power of the Holy Spirit.

Acts 1:8 – But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.

From our human position, no one can really endure such suffering, shame, humiliation, and rejection and still possess love for those who cause those situations. Indeed, it takes the love and mercy of God to send His Son who would not disappointment Him through disobedience, but Who would carry out the plan of salvation so that you and I could be saved.

Holy week, holds much for the believer and for the world of sinners who are yet to be saved. If you would receive Jesus today, holy week will have a greater and more significant meaning to you than it has ever had before. You can receive Jesus now. The word teaches in John 1:11-13:

He came unto his own, and his own received him not.
But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

To as many means you too. Why not turn your life over to Jesus and receive Him in your heart today?  He will not turn you away. Instead, the Word teaches: All that the Father gives me shall come to me; and him that comes to me I will in no wise cast out. (Luke 6:37). This means you, and anyone who will receive Jesus Christ and live for Him. He will not turn you away. There will never be a time when the sinner who comes to Jesus will be turned away by Him. This is why Jesus came. It was to save sinners. Accept the challenge and receive Jesus Christ and be born again into the family of God.

May God bless you, and have a wonderful day.

Jesus loves you more than you can every imagine.

Try Him and see for yourself!
