“Instead, I sometimes think God has put us, apostles, on display, like prisoners of war at the end of a victor’s parade, condemned to die. We have become a spectacle to the entire world-to people and angels alike.” 1 Corinthians 4:9 (NLT)
Today being Good Friday, we remember God’s public display of His only Son to show He fully paid the total redemption price.
Through the Cross, we are restored back to God.
Have you been to that place of the display where your life is publicly displayed by the Cross you have to carry?.
If you bear your own Cross as ordained by God, like Christ, you can identify with the display Apostle Paul talks about.
We are sometimes in situations where what seems to be our private life is publicly displayed for all to see.
Have you had circumstances beyond your control ?.
Everything is being played out like a script?
Jesus prayed before the crucifixion at the garden of Gethsemane that He wished the Cross to pass over Him but nevertheless, God’s perfect will be done.
We all go through phases of our lives that we wish could be otherwise.
Still, as we continue in the perfect will of God, sometimes God chooses to display us as examples of crucified lives so that others can be drawn to the Kingdom of God by our testimonies and victorious life.
Examine yourself that your Cross is not self-inflicted, and be open to the Holy Spirit to correct you.
Be encouraged today as you carry your Cross faithfully.
Don’t be ashamed.
Jesus, our perfect example, Resurrected and the Cross is empty.
You also will overcome and be triumphant.
Good Friday was a public display that ended as God Purposed it.
So also is yours.
