Everything that Jesus has spoken to us in the scriptures is so that we may have peace, but the peace that He gives us is filled with power. With this powerful peace, by faith in Jesus Christ, we are able to be victorious over this world.
No matter how bad life beats you up; no matter what the devil tries to do to destroy you; greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world. Jesus was rejected over and over again. People honored Him with their mouths, but their hearts were far from Him. Then, some of those same people that spoke well of the good things Jesus did, shouted, “Crucify, crucify.”
Jesus didn’t look forward to being beaten half to death, whipped until His back was shredded, and finally crucified on a cross made for the highest criminals. Yet, that peace that He had in the midst of His preparation to die such a brutal death, He was saying, “I give this peace to you because I know you’re going to need it.” He gave us His peace for the storms and His joy for the troubles.
Jesus said, “Take heart, don’t lose it!” He wants us to be aware and awake; to watch and pray; to be sober and vigilant; to remember His suffering for our sins. Jesus wanted us to know that the blood He shed for us is more valuable than someone’s opinion and that His broken body is worth more than the broken connections of people who refuse to believe in Him.
Don’t double-cross Jesus, by accepting man’s word rather than God’s word. Our Savior is not a subject of mockery. Jesus is not “the man upstairs,” but He is God in the flesh and His name is above every name. When the name of Jesus is proclaimed in the holy assembly of God’s people,
“… every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, 11 and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”Philippians 2:10-11
Don’t let the description of Jesus as a lamb fool you, because He’s coming back as the Lion of the Tribe of Judah, to rule and reign as King of kings and Lord of lords. So don’t be ashamed of Jesus. Don’t be ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God to everyone who believes.
“Shout Jesus from the mountains(I Speak Jesus – Song by Charity Gayle)
Jesus in the streets
Jesus in the darkness over every enemy
Jesus for my family
I speak the holy name
Remember that Resurrection Day is all about Jesus Christ, Nothing else and no one else gets the glory!
Jesus I ask that You give me Your peace that goes far beyond understanding, to empower me to endure and overcome this world. In Your name I pray Jesus, Amen.
Today, if you have not received Salvation or you would like to rededicate your life back to Christ, say this prayer:
God, I know that I am a sinner. Right now, Lord, I turn from my sins, and I ask you to forgive me. Jesus, I believe that you died on the cross and rose from the grave, for me. I open my heart and life for You to come in, and I receive You as my Lord and Savior. Thank You, God for saving me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
