Help My Doubt

Faith seeking reason- Mark 9:24

Visual Bible: Informed Consent

We continued to watch clips from the Gospel of John DVD for worship. This week we saw Jesus crucified. It was pretty gross to see again, especially the sound effects of the other two criminals who had their legs broken after Jesus was dead.

Jesus’ death was pretty gross. That’s an important fact because God was letting Jesus die as a substitute for the sinners of the world. Our sin is pretty gross in God’s eyes. Every time we do something unloving, immoral or self-serving we do damage to God’s creation.

The fact that Jesus went to the cross voluntarily is an incredible love to ponder. The Bible says that Jesus was willing to go to the cross because He saw a greater joy on the other side of it. By briefly dying on the cross Jesus saved countless Christians from eternal pain in the next life.

The Bible also says that we can have abundant life in Jesus’ name before we get to heaven too. I have to agree. Being a Christian, for most of my life now, has been a great blessing to my marriage, family, work, play and everything. I love being a Christian!
