A HEAVY CROSS
And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me. Matthew 10:38
What is the weight that has its cross?
Perhaps this is a very timely question for our lives, but in fact someone has an answer to it?
Certainly every human being has a cross to bear, the strange thing is that when we talk about cross depicts the logo to mind, two crossed timbers, however, the real synonymous Cross is sacrifice, grief, suffering, torment, torture, insignia, torture, so; mortification.
So what can be understood that the cross is nothing but unwanted conduct that happens in our lives. So if subintende that when Jesus said that the person who does not take his cross and continue the walk, or in His pecadas does not deserve even pronounce his name. If we are not able to sacrifice our life, suportas pain, mortify ourselves, we are not worthy of Him, for all He has done for us.
Referring to the life of Jesus; which was heavier and difficult to be loaded, the tree, or the circumstances that originalizou the tree?
Of course we were the circumstances because the tree for heavier it was, the pain, only just cover the meat, not lead to a situation so fateful, comprehensive of suffering. The greatest pain was on the shoulders of Jesus, the weight of our infirmities, because they were there, the pain of our body, but also of our soul. This was to fulfill what was spoken by the prophet Isaiah, saying, Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses. Matthew 8:17
This is a hard fact to understand, because if you look in human eyes will ask how can something invisible to be heavier than what we can handle with our hands, that is, than what we can put the weight want.
Think; if we could put on a scale the pain I had ever felt our heart, the weight of the tears shed already, what is the probability of this to lose a piece of wood? Do you know why? The wood you already have a sense of how it will be, you know what can happen before you get it, you see, and preparing psychologically, because inside you has been given an automatic notice of the weight that awaits you .
However, the pain we feel, never went through our mind that they could happen, they arrived by surprise, and all that caught us off guard. Were thrown on us, then, even though it was such a shame to depend on the distance would cause huge impact, that says a person who is tortured with water drop falling on his head, which most agonizing thing should be, could be different if only a drop, but there is torture if it actually happens once did, can be fatal, but is not excruciating. The affliction is, the quantities of fallen drops over time what appeared to be less than a gram, takes the weight of a ton.
This is exactly what happened to Jesus, perhaps it was just the problems of one person that he had to carry, would not cause so much agony, because He came already prepared for it, that was the mission of Jesus, which caused an effect destructive were the quantities of drops on His shoulders, inflamed drops the sin of all mankind Otherwise must he often have suffered since the foundation of the world. But now the end of the world once he appeared to put away sin by the sacrifice of himself. Hebrews 9:26
Imagine then, how great was not the weight that Jesus carried, and even suffering yet appealed the lives of those who tortured him, healed diseases of those who had wounded his soul per hour, those who mercilessly harassed his heart, those who blindly or naively, were emissaries of hell in accordance with the plans of darkness. Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and with the powerful he shall divide the spoil; because he poured out his soul unto death, and was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors. Isaiah 53:12
Jesus bore our burdens, was made sacrifice on that tree endured the most cruel of all tortures, to be hurt by people he carried in his being convicted of those he absorbed, be imprisoned for so many that He freed . And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only but also for the whole world. 1 John 2: 2,
Does our cross has something similar to Jesus? Does our cross is really heavy? We need to review our concepts, challenged for our consciousness, then, carry our cross with courage, no matter the weight we think it has, will only be ours, particularly a drop.
Because our biggest problem is not the weight of the cross, plus the inability to carry her, fear of fiercely support the attacks and collusion evil whips, reason that so many cowardly have opened her hand and dropped on cliff therefore the cross is exactly the bridge we directs to Jesus. And whosoever doth not bear his cross, and come after me can not be my disciple. Luke 14:27
No other carried a heavier cross to Him, since He is innocent, endured silent, because he understood that he was not born clutching a cross, He found while walking, and so would soon move away from it. Our cross is a matter of time, pretty soon we will be in heaven, she had been here, that's what happened with Jesus. Understand this! Continue to walk firm, Jesus walks with you. Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. Revelation 3:10.
God bless us
