Our submissive and suffering Savior fulfilled the will of the Father. While being beaten and spit on by the government, He uttered no threats, but kept entrusting Himself to Him who judges righteously. Aren’t you so glad that Christ went ahead and died for you?
The future might seem to be uncertain to us, but remember God holds the future. God is Sovereign. But, we must recognize He is surely at the door. Let’s never give up making multiplying-disciple makers till He calls us home.
God is absolutely in control of everything. We call this God’s Sovereignty. When we doubt God’s sovereignty we immediately rely on self-sufficiency, which leaves us with a heavy heart or with a misplaced confidence.
Have you experienced the wooing of the Holy Spirit? A gentle nudging to surrender completely to God. Listen to this story of Nicodemus who found himself being drawn to Jesus, though he was a man who had need of nothing.
Sometimes people say, “I know I have been forgiven by God, and as far as I know I have forgiven everyone, but something is still wrong.” My friend, the problem is self-directed. God has forgiven you, once and for all. Forgive yourself of what God has already forgiven you for.
