However, time and time again we see man rejecting God, and in this passage that is again what we see happening. Jesus carried our burdens and yet we scorned and mocked him. This passage truly displays the hatred that dwells within man. Humanity had no reason to hate Jesus, yet the hatred of the Pharisees was able to fill all the people with such despise that they would cheer for his death. This passage also displays God’s unconditional grace.
Christ cried out for the last time when he was separated from God, “my father, my father, why have you forsaken me?”. Christ never felt pain until confronted with his punishment for our sins. Christ sacrificed everything for his people. It is wonderful to understand Christ’s will in the Gospel. He conveys to us an excellent message of his love and sorrow at our sin nature.
This amount of suffering was not satisfying enough for those who wanted to see Jesus dead so Pontius Pilot gave the public a cho... ... middle of paper ... ... The Paschal Mystery of Christ; the passion, death and resurrection and the religious message of these is shown in Jesus of Nazareth. The passion is Jesus withstanding torture to show the unconditional love he has for each and every one of us. With his death, Christ liberates all humans for their wrong doings and forgives them. The most importance is put on the Resurrection of Jesus because by rising he is opens the pathway for new and eternal life for us.
He also informs Philemon to charge him for Onesimus wrongdoing. Christ did the same thing for us with God. Jesus came before God and paid the price for sin of the world. Through this sinner could now become saved and become children of God. This letter retells what Christ did for us through the greatest theme of
Forgiving someone means that what happened between people is put in the past. The pain and memory will always be the person who had done the wrong is forgiven. Christians are to fear the Lord because of how powerful and almighty he is. God’s loves for everyone is gargantuan, so Christians are supposed to obey Him and His word. God tells everyone to forgive those who had hurt them.
It tells us how we have fallen short of God’s standard; how we have become guilty, filthy, and helpless in sin, and now stand under the wrath of God. It tells us that the reason why we sin continually is that we are sinners by nature, and that nothing we do, or try to do, for ourselves can put us right, or bring us back into God’s favor” (Packer, 1961, p.
God is just doing what He has to by sending them out of the Garden. He is the high and almighty God, He made Adam and Eve, He made the world, He can do whatever He wants and if you disobey him you will get punished. It’s the same thing with Satan, Satan rebelled, and God had to do what he had to do and that was to send him out of heaven to hell. Satan, Adam, and Eve all lose the best things they had in there lives because they just couldn’t listen and follow what God wanted them to do. Satan rebelled against God when He chose His son, Jesus, to be the ruler of the world.
In the book of Zachariah, the Lord says: "They will look on me, the one they have pierced, and they will mourn for him as one mourns for an only child, and grieve bitterly for him as one grieves for a firstborn son". (Zechariah 12:10)". In this verse we clearly see that the Lord has predicted his own death on the cross and getting strike by a spear, which happened to Jesus Christ (John 19:34-37). In the New Covenant we see so many verses that talks about Jesus being God. In John we read: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
You cannot serve both God and money.” Simply said, serving anyone or anything but God is bad news. Jesus served and loved those who mocked him, scorned Him and even those who screamed for Him to be crucified. He also loves us even though we go about living life ignoring what God would have us to do. He went to the cross and died for all of us. That’s true selflessness.
Most of all, Jesus wanted everyone to come into an intimate relationship with Him so that they may experience life to the fullest. Humanity was unable to keep that laws perfectly that God had given them with the Ten Commandments, and God knew that humans were incapable of keeping every law at all times. The bible says that if we break one law, we are a sinner and must be held accountable for that one sin. Many Christians walking in the truth know that without Jesus, they are destined for hell due to their many sins. Jesus bridged the relational gap between God and humans.
