Weekly Photo Challenge: The Inspiration of Christ

I would venture to say that the majority of people live for themselves and live for the day now.  I can’t blame them.  I have never seen much sense in life or existence as purely haphazard or lived for self.  As much as I like things “my way” I know it’s not realistic and it’s actually downright selfish.  I know Oprah has been spouting “Living Your Dreams” for many years now, but before Oprah, was someone called Jesus.

Jesus spoke of living abundantly because of Him.  In the context he spoke of this, John 10:10, he pointed out how those that came before Him were thieves and robbers.   He was not that way, he spoke of the way to live abundantly in the truth and love here and eternally.  Most others, even your “Oprahs” or motivational speakers, want something.  They want money from us, from anyone and everyone.  They want to live in mansions and have the world at their command, not God’s command.  Jesus never wanted anything from anyone on this physical plane.  He said if you loved Him, to keep His commandments of loving God and loving one another.

Jesus is my inspiration to treat others as I wish to be treated.  To not expect any treasures while I am on this earth, but to live according to God’s will and look forward to heaven.  I pray everyday to do God’s will and not my own and be lead in the spirit to be able to further God’s kingdom while I am on this earth.  Jesus was willing to die to save our souls.  God gave His only Son for Us.  It is the least I can do.

Another Good Friday: John 15:13

Jesus the Christ

This scripture is still true to this day.  All over the world there are people who lay down their lives for the sake of others.  Some do it to save lives, some do it in an attempt to help others live in freedom or some other principle they hold dear.  Christ gave His life over 2000 years ago to save the world and to this day many mock him and his followers just as they mocked him before his brutal murder.  Blessedly God’s people will have the last laugh.  Evil thought that it had won that day but thankfully love never dies and instead His sacrifice has been life saving to billions throughout all these years.  There has never been anyone like Him and never will be again.  I’m talking about Jesus.  Being obedient even unto death He was able to live again in paradise like his people will someday.

Don’t be afraid to take up your cross and follow him.  Dare to be a hero to somebody.  Evil is weak but love is strong, selfless and endless.

John15-13
I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality.  This is why right, temporarily defeated, is stronger than evil triumphant.       Martin Luther King Jr
