However, if you suffer as a Christian, do not be ashamed, but praise God that you bear that name. 1 Peter 4:16 NIV
“And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.”
John 1:14 NKJV
Throughout the day and night, I feel the Presence of My Heavenly Father and His Precious Son, Jesus. Life is hard. All the craziness happening now causes suffering, heartbreak, confusion, frustration and a feeling of being broken. If I did not have a relationship with God/Jesus, I cannot imagine being able to survive. I have spent most of my time during this Holy Week studying the Book of John and thinking about what Jesus must have been experiencing. HE knew His time on Earth was almost over, and HE continued to lead the people to live a better life. HE knew HE was going to be betrayed, but HE continued to treat others with love and kindness and wanted everyone to have eternal life with God.
The more I read and learn from the Bible, the closer I feel to God. It has been so comforting to know that Our Heavenly Father is the same today, yesterday, and tomorrow! He loved us unconditionally and so much that He sent His Only Begotten Son to hang on a cross and shed His Precious Blood for our sins. The Only Perfect Man Who committed NO SINS was beaten, pierced with a sword, and nailed to an old rugged cross which he had to carry. HE BLED and DIED for You and for Me. HE arose from the dead, revealed Himself to His Disciples and followers, and Ascended to Heaven to sit at the right hand of His Father. HE IS ALIVE, and He Will Return!
34 “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. (John 13:34 NIV)
Please pray for me, as I am praying for you!
