What according to us is Good Firday and Easter? Why we celebrate these two events as so important?
What do you feel when you see Christ carrying the cross in front of you.
We know the absolute story about this two events that has been recorded in the history of mankind and also we understand why Christ died and his resurrection on the third day,
Today, I am talking about what if you were in the crowd when Jesus was carrying the cross, you see it in front of your eyes, how would you react and what happens then.
When Jesus was carrying the cross at one point he breaks down, Matthew 27, says Jesus, he was weak wounded and unable to carry the cross and cannot move further, unable to lift the cross, that’s how when Simon tried to carry the cross its was to heavy he would found it very heavy and unmovable weight, we have to notice that this cross what Jesus was carrying was different and cross we carry today is different i.e which is related to our spiritual, walk.
but in Luke 14:27 says” Whoever does not bear his own cross and come after me cannot be my disciple.”
Jesus carried our sins on the cross, if he would wish he would have just moved out his power but he didn’t.
People understand one this if you are man in the crowd watching Jesus carrying the cross, understand that he is showing the importance of cross in your life you are carrying today.
Look at that man, who is carrying your sins on the cross in those streets and toward the land of dead, where he is going to be crucified for all sins,
Understand one thing that there was point when Jesus put down his cross because it so heavy, that point is teaching point for us.
We may also, come through the same point where we cannot carry the cross and pull ourselves down,
At the sometime Simon come into picture he lift up the cross to some distance, that was the INDICATION OF THE HELPER GOD WILL PROVIDE YOU, i believe it was the indication of Holy Spirit, as helper.
You cannot lift you cross; on your own you need a helper who can help you to left up and carry the cross. Thou you are going through the street of shame or trouble so on.
Jesus left your a sign before crucification that how you would be carrying the cross as reference to Luke 14:27 and Matthew 16:24, Then Jesus said to his disciples, “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me.
Understand that Jesus was weak when was crucified that why in 2 Corinthian 12:9 my grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.
My friends don’t feel weak when you are going low times in your life; look at the man who carried that heavy cross, that cross is the sign that we can be victories in the trouble time.
God so much in love with us that he gave his son Jesus for us and Jesus perfectly showed us the ways to live life, until he comes back.
He showed not to worry about the cross you are carrying because he has sent you a helper and as well he is strength when you are weak helpless, all you have do is believe, in Jesus, who died for you and risen for you,
Have good week of Easter,
God Bless you all,
