“…He poured out his life unto death” – Isaiah 53 v 12
The verse above speaks of Christ, dying on the cross for our sins. The phrase “poured out” speaks of excess and liberality. Verbs such as sprinkle or spray are avoided, their nature far too miserly and tight-fisted. Our Saviour surrendered His soul as an offering for sin, giving Himself freely without hesitation. He held nothing back, but rather ran into the arms of death, embracing the darkness, accepting the agony. His reward, would be you and I with Him for all eternity. This reward, He found irresistible. The promise of such, compelled Him.
Today, I speak to you who are weary, you who are downtrodden. As our Lord died for you, He now lives for you. His love is immeasurable, His concern incalculable. Certainly, He does not save only to abandon. His plan is not to ignore you until heaven becomes home. You are His child now and forever. The Lord does not desert His children. “Can a woman forget her nursing child, and not have compassion on the son of her womb? Surely they may forget, yet I will not forget you. See, I have inscribed you on the palms of My hands,” we read in Isaiah 49. Cry out to Him today and He will come to your aid. He is already on His way. The price He paid to make you His child was immense. You are of exceedingly great value. Precious. Cherished. Unforgettable.
Yours in Him,
Despondent and discouraged, 35-year-old Gladys made her way to our MODJADJI Gospel Crusade. Having experienced pain in her body for over a year, she was becoming increasingly frustrated. “I had a terrible pain in my left side. This sickness was becoming too much for me, I was angry all the time. It affected me badly.” As on every night of our crusades, we prayed for the sick to be healed. Gladys was one of those who received their miracle. “During the prayer, I started shaking. Now, I am healed – the pain is completely gone!” In addition to receiving her healing, Gladys also received the greatest miracle of all that very same evening – salvation. “I took my life and gave it to Him,” she testified, ecstatic with expectation. “I can see everything changing now that I am born-again. I thank God for what He has done for me.” Leaving the crusade field, Gladys was convinced that she was loved; never to be forgotten by the God who set her free!
