Jesus was a real person, he was flesh and blood like all of us, and he knew he would feel all the pain and suffering. Jesus knew all of this was going to happen to him. But He willingly gave the ultimate sacrifice, his life, so that we may obtain salvation. Jesus could have stopped it, the Bible says he could have called out and an army of angels would have come to his rescue, but he didn't. He didn't because he knew that by his dying, that was the only way we, as people could be reconciled to God. And he knew that he had to take the whipping because the bible says : "through his stripes we are healed." -Isaiah 53:5
This weekend I will celebrate. Not only with food, laughter or cakes but also with thankfulness and hands lifted up high to our gracious and soveriegn God. Will you be celebrating with me?
