It was premeditated murder. Can you imagine being murdered in broad daylight and in front of witnesses? My best friend was killed, or should I say murdered, actually He was executed. No matter which word you use or how you look at it, it is the same thing; murder. On top of the crime itself the people who did it had no shame or regret. What is sad is that He sacrificed His whole life so that others will have a better life. Yet all He did is not enough for some people. was it jealousy, greed, or just God’s will?
The Bible tells us in Romans 8:28 that, “All things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose.” So is this considered justifiable homicide, because it was for the benefit of good over evil? “But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement of our peace was upon Him, and with His stripes we are healed, all we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned everyone to his own way, and the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all” (Isaiah 53:5-6).
It’s amazing that celebrities who never did anything as dramatic as what happen to my friend get more praise and notoriety, than what my friend did on Calvary. Is He your friend also? If not He could be. Listen, He could have come down from the cross and saved Himself. He could have stopped the whole fiasco with one word, but He decided to die, just to save us so that we could live with Him forever in paradise. Wasn’t His death enough of a price or sacrifice to save, redeem, and liberate you?
What will it take? How long must He wait for you? How many hurricanes does God have to send to alert you? How many more messages does He have to send you? When will you see the light and be drawn to Him? Yes, Jesus was God sent. He wants you to accept Him, and believe that God raised Him from the dead? How many other friends do you think will die so you might live? There will be no more messiah to warn you? No one else is coming to save you? Jesus Christ paid it all.
