My salvation // 16-04-19

“One of the criminals hanging beside him scoffed, “So you’re the Messiah, are you? Prove it by saving yourself—and us, too, while you’re at it!”” Luke‬ ‭23:39‬ ‭NLT‬‬

So many people treat Jesus like this first criminal. ‘If you are God, prove it!’ ‘If you are God why I am going through this?’ ‘If you are God, do something for me!’ There is no taking of responsibility, no true turning to Him, no recognition that I have done nothing to deserve anything from God! They don’t want to know who He is, they don’t want to hear and do what He says, they just make their demands and scoff when they get no response! Jesus makes no reply to this criminal and sadly he completely missed the point that Jesus was in the very act of saving Him! Lord, don’t let me miss out on the miracle of what You want to do because I am so fixed on what I want You to do! I want to know You, so in humility and immense gratitude I choose to trust and to walk Your way today. Amen ✞= ♥
