Christ paid the ultimate sacrifice for every human being on Earth. For all time, no greater gift can be received. Not a single person can match it. God Himself did that for us. At times when nothing else can humble or comfort me, remembering who Christ was, and is, does. I just need that constant reminder. I’m not unlike everybody else.
So when people talk bad about me, I know I don’t have to care. When they challenge me, or I feel threatened, I don’t have to give in to the temptation to be hateful. I’ve got Jesus, and He’s got me. Everything of this world is temporary but His love is everlasting. I submit to God who, ultimately, is the only one I answer to.
Thank you, Lord. Thank you, Jesus. Amen.
