Jesus paid the price

I was inspired today by a lady from California who was touched by Christ and deterred from Buddhism some 40 years ago.  She mentioned it was through a preacher I knew personally who told her about the price that Jesus Christ paid.

Today on the way to work I pondered that very price that Jesus paid in his suffering and bitter death of crucifixion. In the midst of it all I think of the public spectacle and the mocking that came forth before the crucifixion.

I think of the intent of His heart without hate or anger. The motive to give himself to die a horrible death without retaliation toward those who hurt, mocked, and bruised him. There was innocence without the guilt of sin.

God required the death of His son to redeem fallen man from rebellion and sin. The price was death by crucifixion. Jesus paid the price by giving himself as a lamb before the slaughter. The mental anguish. Distraught by human emotion without bitterness or envy toward those who decided beating, punishment, and public humiliation.

What a price Jesus paid! The offering of himself to Roman punishment. The offering of himself to Jewish hatred and animosity toward a man born in a manger who claimed Messiahship at the age of 30.

Much went on in God’s plan for sinful man concerning the price that was paid. A price unto God Almighty for the redemption of fallen man. “Thank you Jesus”, for giving this writer a way of escape from sin, rebellion, and disobedience to God…28 years ago. Thank you for allowing me to hear and be inspired by Mary’s testimony. Thank you for re-kindling the fire of faith in my heart. Thank you for the best life anyone can have on this side of Heaven.

About rickroehm

Since 1988 I’ve been writing and doing service for the Lord. It all began in 1987 after a personal walk began with the Lord. This personal walk with the Lord I speak of turned into extensive Bible studies and later evolved into blogging in early 2000. At present I write, author, and publish several different sites on the Internet. My Blogs contain a vast library of Theological writings, teaching videos, and preaching audios that currently go around the globe for the cause of Christ. I write at Christian Blessings on Wordpress, Holy Hubert Lindsey Group on Facebook, Churches on Trial at Google, publish You Tube videos, record sermons at holy.sermon.net, etc. I also pastor a Church called the Upper Room in Williamsburg, Ohio . My secular Blog called Southwestern Ohio Fishing on Wordpress is where I write about experiences with my son and fishing partner Chad where we together enjoy Mother Nature’s beauty mixed with Father God’s creation. At Southwestern Ohio Fishing Blog I also publish favorite recipes for those who enjoy eating and cooking as much as this writer does. Thanks for sharing your time and life with this writer at the Blogs. Here's more access to my ministry and fishing Blog if you'd care to check them out further.
