Have you ever wondered what will be the reaction of God every time you sin? Just the other week, I asked myself about that question. While reading the book of Exodus, I somehow got the answer. I have seen the grace of God while leading the people of Israel to the promise Land, I have seen how stubborn is His love, I have seen His patience, His anger in Exodus 32:9 if not for Moses who interceded for the Israelites maybe God destroyed them. and I’ve seen His self control. I’ve seen His wisdom, His justice.
I believed God is the same yesterday, today and forever. And so when I sin, He still got angry, every. I deserved to die, I deserved punishment. But just like Moses, there is someone who is interceding for me, there is my Jesus. I think everytime I sin, Jesus reminds God the Father of what He has done on the cross. 1 John 2:1 “But if anybody does sin we have one who speaks to the Father in our defense Jesus Christ the righteous one”
Maybe the conversation goes this way “Father, you can not let your wrath fall on Jhunnelle. You can’t punish her, you can’t let her die. Yes, she deserved all these things. She must die, she must be cursed, she must be punished. But Father, Jhunnelle accepted me, she trusted me. I was cursed that He might have abundant life, I died that He might have eternal life, I resurrected that she might have a victorious life. Yes Father, I qualified her to have life instead of death, to have a blessed life instead of a cursed life, to have a victorious life instead of defeated life.
That’s why Jesus Christ is so precious to me.
Some said you just a prophet
Some said that you are a great teacher
Some said that you are just a man
Some said that you are insane.
They ridiculed you for claiming who you are.
But I say, You are whom you claim to be
You are for me My God.
You are the great “I Am”
You are the “Alpha and the Omega”
The universe was created through You.
You are my Savior, you gave me eternal life
You are a qualifier, you qualified me to have an abundant life
You are my guide my light
I have everything because the owner of everything adopted me.
You are my everything.
You set me free from all my sins, that I may live a life pleasing to you.
