Awesome reminder for those of us who are weary in well-doing, tired of fighting the good fight of faith, or don’t even know we are sleeping!
Every time I watch this, it gives me chills. Sometimes we just need our temperature taken. If it’s a matter of ignorance, we need to WAKE UP!
Yes, it’s hard to stand up and fight everyday in the midst of trial. Yes, we are persecuted. Yes, the way people treat us can be unfair and undeserved…but we most likely will never be nailed to a cross…think of all He gave up for us.
Seriously, let’s break this down for a minute:
The man was in heaven…literally! Picture it, Sicily, 1912, a young peasant…Ok, I’m back 🙂 Seriously, though all Golden Girls references and joking aside…streets of gold…a royal throne, Worship 24/7..paradise…he left paradise to come down here into the armpit of the universe, to be ridiculed, persecuted, beaten, and nailed to a cross for US…that is huge! If that doesn’t tell us how much he loves us, I don’t know what will.
And we are still asleep?…
