Jesus Christ is God’s Son

I received a letter from Global Media Outreach for the Weekly Prayer Focus. The Lenten season is near, though we should always do remember what God did for us, this is also a great time for us to re-think again, reflect and meditate how God’s Love revealed through our Lord Jesus Christ.  In this season I know some of us are in vacation or with our families but hope to remind that we can share to everyone, how really God embraced our own weaknesses and failures.

Jesus Christ is God’s Son. As we look at preparing for Easter this year, let us realize how wonderful it is that God’s Son came to die for us.

How can one man take on the sins of the whole world? An ordinary man could not do this — but Jesus is not just a man. He came to earth 2,000 years ago and was born of a virgin whose name was Mary. Jesus’ father is God. Jesus Himself existed with God from the beginning of time. “He was in very nature God.”

What is wonderful and amazing is that Jesus, the sinless son of God, came to earth and took punishment that He did not deserve. “For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him would not perish, but would have eternal life. God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved.” Everyone on earth has sinned; God has laid on Christ the punishment for the sins of us all.

What we have to do is accept Jesus Christ as our savior; agree with God that we have sinned; and thank God that Jesus paid the penalty for our sins. Without that, we are deserving of eternal death and punishment and separation from God. When we accept Jesus Christ, we are given the gift of eternal life — and forgiveness for all our sins! What a wonderful gift! How great is the love of God!

So this week, let us thank God

  • For sending His own Son Jesus to be our Savior
  • For allowing His Son to be crucified to pay the penalty for our sins
  • For His great love for us

God is so wonderful — He is willing to not hold our sins against us, but He wants us to be His sons and daughters. Let us live our lives in thankfulness to God.

Dear Father, we praise and give you thanks and honor for all the showered blessings and continuing love for humanity.  To the point of sacrificing your Son, bearing the pain of seeing Him beaten and hang in the cross; mocked and insulted — until death.  Abba Father, though it’s quite hard for us to comprehend all these things and Your mystery, what we all know that You love us, your sons and daughters.  May you allow us Father to help us grow in love, peace and compassion.  Help us to bear the pain and suffering, hurts, anxiety, misunderstandings in our midst.  Father, please give us a heart like your Son.  A heart that gives, forgives and forgets.  A spirit that is obedient to you.  Send us your Holy Spirit to be filled up with your power so that we may do your work and tell/share among our brethren about You and Your love.

All praises are yours Father together with the Holy Spirit and our Lord Jesus Christ, all glory are Yours now and Forever.  AMEN
