Pain of the world

He himself bore our sins in his body upon the cross so that, free from sin, we might live for righteousness. By his wounds, you have been healed – 1 Peter 2:24

His own people rejected him
He was betrayed by his friend
His friend denied him
His people handed him over for crucifixion
He was flogged
A crown of thorns was placed on his head
He was mocked
He was spat on
He was insulted….(A WHOLE KING)
He was scourged
His mother watched him die…
He was nailed on the cross
Insulted by a thief
Much more…..

Yesterday, I read my lovy’s post. She wrote about pain. The post was really deep. So, yesterday night….I was thinking about how much I hated pain…all kinds of pain…physical, mental, emotional, psychological..I hate pain…Then I came across something that had to do with the death of Christ..and I felt pain inside me…All he went through..just so that I can be free…I have never watched ‘Passion of Christ’ fully because it is painful and deep and I tear up anytime I see a bit of it. I hate seeing it because I feel guilt and everyone knows how terrible guilt can feel. So, I don’t want to be reminded that everyday of m life…I forget that someone did something really special for me centuries ago..That as he was nailed on that cross, I was on his mind…He felt ‘I’m doing this for Dolly because I want her to be saved and I want her to be free and to live a good life’…He left his throne…where he was treated as a KING…to come to earth to save me…All that pain…just for me…and Mary(Bless her soul) watched as her son died…No one in his/her right senses would want to go through that sort of pain for anyone talk less of for the whole world…I’m no saint…I sin everyday….terrible sins…I wish I could be better and I try..but today I’m using this to acknowledge what someone beautiful did for me and for everyone…It’s amazing and I love Jesus Christ with all my heart, my being…and I thank him for doing this for me.

Happy Good Friday.
