"They will scourge Him and kill Him. And the third day He will rise again." - Luke 18 V33
"who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness - by whose stripes you were healed." - 1 Peter 2 V24
Christian faith is often a subject of mockery to some people and the media. Especially during this time of the year, when we observe our Lord's death and celebrate His resurrection, the non-believing world and the media mock at Christian faith. But only those who know the Lord personally and acknowledge His love can understand the true value of His sacrifice and the love of our Lord. All others are blinded and we should rejoice that we were considered worthy by our Lord to be His chosen people. It is not that we have earned this worthiness, but because of His grace and His stripes we are saved. The invitation is open to all, for Christ died for the sins of all mankind, but only those who repent of their sins and accept Him as Lord and Saviour are accepted by God.
"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ
