All Fizz, No Substance
The reality of the Messiah was not someone who would come to destroy Rome…….Jesus came to destroy sin and death and the bondage of Satan! Jesus did not come to build a Palace…..He abandoned Majesty, to die on a cross!! Jesus didn’t come to be served as King. Jesus was a King who came to serve as a slave!! They got it all wrong! Jesus didn’t come as a warrior…..He came as the Sacrificial Lamb of God, to take away the sins of humanity! (Isaiah 53:3-5). They just didn’t get it…..and then they cried, “Crucify Him!!” The people missed the point, but what about us? Do we get the point? Is that how we connect with Jesus? Do we understand that Jesus wants us to take up our cross; to feed the poor; love our enemies; bless those who curse us; do good to those who hurt us and pray for those who spitefully use and persecute us? Just like those 21 centuries before us, some still don’t get it!! Take time in prayer and allow the Lord to give you His heart to do His Will.
