Take UP Your Cross

Isaiah 53:2-5
2 For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.
3 He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
4 Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
5 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.

Have you ever experienced a personal healing or seen someone else healed?

I have witnessed a healing. When I was around 10, my mom burned herself on our new microwave. She put a loaf of bread in there to defrost it and forgot to take the twisty tie off. It caught fire, and she put it out with her hands rather than risking the house catching on fire. As a result, her hands blistered.

I went to vacation Bible School that day and requested prayer for her from everyone who would listen. She had wrapped her hands so she could take me and pick me up before heading to the doctor. When she picked me up, one of the ladies asked her if she could see her hands. Mom took the wrappings from her hands to show the lady. We all got a surprise when she unwrapped them. Her hands were as though they had never been burned. I don't know that I would have believed it had I not seen it with my own eyes. I had seen the burns and blisters that morning. By afternoon they were completely gone.

#2225667 by Chris Breva AKA Marvin Schrebe

I wrote this in 2019 on Facebook.

Reflecting on 24 years ago today. My heart is saddened by the tragedy that took place that day. I can't help but remember it. It feels like a lifetime ago. Although I was fortunate to not lose someone I loved that day, I knew people who did. I heard so many stories in the following weeks and months about how lives were affected and changed. It was like a dark cloud hanging over my high school graduation which was only a month and day after that. I felt the ground shake and heard what sounded like thunder when the bomb went off downtown. I was at home and nearly fell out of the shower because the ground shook so hard. I had the privilege of helping a friend who worked for the city answer some of the letters that poured in from other people and high school aged students from around the country. Their were so many and they didn't want any of them to go unanswered. It is hard in some ways to explain how it affected me personally. No I am not a victim of it, but to witness the aftermath of something like that so close to home deffinately leaves it mark or impression. It is hard to believe that some of the children affected are grown and now pursuing their own careers now. It makes me feel kind of old....

This is the link to the group I do these Scripture writings with on Facebook if anyone else is interested in doing so also.

Scripture writing - James 2:5-10

5 Hearken, my beloved brethren, Hath not God chosen the poor of this world rich in faith, and heirs of the kingdom which he hath promised to them that love him?
6 But ye have despised the poor. Do not rich men oppress you, and draw you before the judgment seats?
7 Do not they blaspheme that worthy name by the which ye are called?
8 If ye fulfil the royal law according to the scripture, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself, ye do well:
9 But if ye have respect to persons, ye commit sin, and are convinced of the law as transgressors.
10 For whosoever shall keep the whole law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.

Verse 5- God chooses the poor of the world but rich in faith.
Verse 6- People despise the poor and prefer the rich who oppress them.
Verse 7- The Rich people despise God.
Verse 8- You do well if you love your neighbors as yourself.
Verse 9- If you have favoritism, you sin.
Verse 10- If you offend in one point of the law, you are guilty of breaking all of it.

If you commit one tiny sin, you are a transgressed of God's law. Even if you do good, you have broken it. We can not have favoritism with other people. We should treat everyone equally.

Dear Heavenly Father,
Help me to treat everyone equally without favoritism. Let me not despise or mistreat those who are less fortunate.
In Christ's name I ask it,

Prompt: “To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
How successful are you in resisting the kind of world Emerson is talking about? Or if you wish, how successful can anyone be in resisting that world?

Oh I am definitely myself and proud of it. Many have tried to change me and failed. I can not pretend to be something I am not. I simply can not stand it. I think that is partly the preacher’s kid in me. It has earned me a reputation of sometimes being a rebel. In some ways I certainly can be. I try to be one in a good way now though. That wasn't always the case.

I once tried to fix myself, but I failed. Then I got to know Jesus Christ. He is still working on me every day, but as I study his Word and his ways, I get a little bit better every day.
