I am sure everyone is having fun and enjoying christmas with family and friends. (: I am glad that even people who is not a believer can still celebrate this joyous occasion merrily and happily. As for me, I just wanted to spend some time with the Lord in my own way. I cannot explain how much thankfulness I have in my heart for this day of Jesus being born in this world for me. I knew I wrote a post wishing Jesus a happy birthday, but my heart is just so filled with His love for me that I decided to post again on His birth day sharing about Jesus love for us.
I was watching the movie “Son of God” based on the gospel of John. Every time I watch how Jesus is being crucified I never fail to cry. Crybaby arent I. Just knowing how so innocent and faultless a man is and to be crucified, is still something beyond my own understanding. All Jesus did was teaching the word of God to the people, healed the sick, raised the dead and forgave the sins of the sinners, but He still had to be crucified in the end. I can only feel love, love, love and more love from Jesus and Daddy God.
It is quite interesting that when I was tearing on the part when Jesus was on the cross, I heard thunder from my room. I thought it was raining outside, but when I opened up the curtain from my room, this is what I saw.
“Such beautiful view” I thought and just wished to share. Despite the dark clouds surrounding, it looks like the sky is shining it’s light upon the earth. To me, it seems like God is telling me that He will always be with me, loving me because of this day that Jesus is brought down to earth. When I was looking to the sky I said “Yes, Lord I know you love me, and so do I, for You had first given me your love.”
Mark 15:33-39 “Now when the sixth hour had come, there was darkness over the whole land until the ninth hour. And at the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying, ‘Eloi, Eloi, lama sabachthani?’ which is translated, ‘My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?’ Some of those who stood by, when they heard that, said, ‘Look, He is calling for Elijah!’ Then someone ran and filled a sponge full of sour wine, put it on a reed, and offered it to Him to drink, saying, ‘Let Him alone; let us see if Elijah will come to take Him down.’ And Jesus cried out with a loud voice, and breathed His last. Then the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. So when the centurion, who stood opposite Him, saw that He cried out like this and breathed His last, he said, ‘Truly this Man was the Son of God!’
My pastor once said that when Jesus cried “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?” is so I can cry to God “Daddy, Daddy..” Because when Jesus called His Father as “God”, Jesus was actually taking our place for our sins before He breathed His last and said “It is finished”. To be able to call God as my Heavenly Daddy, it is my very utmost privileged I have received from Jesus. Nothing is closer than family, and to have God as my Daddy, it is the best gift I could ever ask for in this life. Thank you so much Jesus for loving me and giving me this privilege to call God, Daddy.
