Let Go and Live

Psalm 31:6
Into your hands I commend my spirit; you will redeem me, Lord, faithful God.

Jesus shows us the face of God throughout His ministry…all the way to the end. He responds even to His persecutors and killers with love, mercy and forgiveness. He hangs on the cross for you and me (not in place of) and with you and me. No matter what suffering or injustice you are going through…Jesus is hanging there with you and showing you that this is not the end. Love wins…not death. Jesus also shows us that making someone the “scapegoat”…trying to “get rid” of someone you have deemed the “problem” or a “trouble-maker”…is wrong. He becomes the one “thrown-out” and rejected…and then forgives. Gaze upon Him on the cross and see the result of engaging in this kind of “scapegoating”! Jesus also shows us how to respond to life’s struggles. This is our model to live by…the “way and the truth and the life” (John 14:6). This is the way that the Kingdom of God becomes present.  Cling to Him in your struggle and respond in love and forgiveness…for your resurrection is coming!
