    Jesus Had A Choice

    With Easter just around the corner I’ve been thinking a lot about Jesus’ crucifixion and resurrection. John 1:1 says, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God” then in John 1:14 it says “And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth”.

    When John talks about the “Word” he is talking about Jesus. When God created the world, Jesus (the Word) “was with God and was God”, then Jesus became flesh and lived among us. Jesus, the Son of God, stood with Him while He placed the stars in the sky and separated the land from the ocean and light from darkness. Jesus with all the power and authority of God himself came to this earth and lived just like you or me.

    Sometimes I get so wrapped up in thinking about the resurrection of Jesus Christ (an awesome thing to get wrapped up in), that I forget how powerful Jesus is. With all the power of God, Jesus could have come down off the cross whenever He wanted to. Jesus did not have to hang there and suffer while people insulted Him. Jesus did not have to die.

    Jesus had a choice. That is what makes the crucifixion so special to me. God could have left us in the mess we made for ourselves, but He didn’t. Out of love, Jesus chose to hang on that cross because of how much He loves me, because of how much He loves you. Let this inspire you to live a life worthy of His sacrifice.

    If you need to hear God tell you how much He loves you in the midst of all the pressure and noise around you, here is a great little tip to help you focus on what God is speaking to you.

    But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. –Romans 5:8
