My dearly Beloved,
In this world, everybody's searching for a hero. People need someone to look up to but never has a person ever found anyone who can fulfill all their needs. It is quite a lonely place to be in. Only one Man’s love for mankind and His death on the cross can rightfully claim to fill that void. His name is Jesus.
Many hearts today are crushed and broken by the unloving, hurting, poisonous words that are thrown at them by parents, spouses, children, mentors, teachers and even strangers. But the unconditional love and the exhorting word of God Almighty is the balm that heals and soothes the wounds caused by people. Just think about it. The one who has lived with you, known you and shared the last meal with you is going to betray you for a few pieces of silver. Won’t your heart which trusted and loved that person break into a million pieces?
This exactly what happened to Jesus who celebrated Passover with His twelve disciples knowing well that after He broke bread with them, He would be betrayed by one of them. At the Garden of Gethsemane, He was desperate that someone should pray with Him and for Him as He was so disturbed and in agony about the ordeal he would have to bear till the time he was nailed to the cross. He battled every resistance in His flesh, spirit, mind and body all alone; so great was the struggle that His sweat turned to drops of blood.
Who was He doing it for? For each one of you, beloved. He took it all, being trampled like a rose on the ground, with love in His eyes and heart for each one of you as He walked with blood dripping from His battered, broken body to His death. Do you still want to harden your heart and not let the greatest love of all save you?
Loving Heavenly Father, I prostrate myself at Your feet and ask You O Lord to forgive me of all my stubbornness. Father, wash me by the blood of Jesus and make me new. Today, I realize the value you have for me in Your heart. Let Your love fill me today Lord. The love that is unfathomable and which says I am yours forever. Father today I know there is no greater love than Yours for me. Bless me with Your obedience and grace to walk in Your way. Thank You Lord!
In Jesus name
