Qualified!: Jesus is the only one who was qualified (able/ skilled for the job) of forgiving everyone from sin!
1 Timothy 2:5
“There is one God and one mediator so that human beings can reach God. That way is through Christ Jesus, who is Himself human.”
Quiet!: When Elijah the prophet ran because he was afraid of evil Queen Jezebel, Elijah went to hide in a cave. While in the cave there was an earthquake and a fire but God did not use those to speak to Elijah. God used a quiet voice to reach the heart of Elijah! Will you let your heart be open to Jesus’ to speak to you quietly? Spend time with Jesus in Prayer & Bible Study! Before Jesus was put on the cross, He was judged. When Jesus was asked questions by the judges, Jesus was always quiet/ silent. The Old Testament told that this would happen. Jesus went to cross because He loves us and He wants all to be saved!
1 Kings 19:12
“After the earthquake, there was a fire, but the Lord was not in the fire. After the fire, there was a quiet, gentle sound.”
“He (Jesus)was beaten down and punished,
but He didn’t say a word.
He was like a lamb being led to be killed.
He was quiet, as a sheep is quiet while its wool is being cut;
He never opened his mouth.”
Matthew 26:63 “
But Jesus remained silent. The high priest said to him, “I charge you under oath by the living God: Tell us if you are the Messiah, the Son of God.”
Never Quits!: Jesus finished The job that God, the Father gave Him to do. Jesus job was to live a perfect life, to die on the cross and raise from the dead to save the world. Jesus could have chosen to quit, but He did Not quit. Jesus finished His work on the cross! We need to follow Jesus’ example and finish the jobs that God gives us to do to serve Him.
John 17:4” Having finished the work You (God, the Father) gave Me (Jesus)to do, I brought You ( God ) glory on earth.”
John 19:30 “When Jesus tasted the vinegar, He said, “It is finished.” Then He bowed His head and died.”
