YOU NEED JESUS - Never forget that.
Some time ago the Holy Spirit put a picture into my mind. And I saw:
. A man.
. In the center of a large circle area.
. Completely alone -no friend - no help- no one to even speak up for him.
. No shelter - nothing to hide behind.
. No weapon or shield.
. Naked - no padding - no cushion of clothing.
. Beaten already beyond what anyone can imagine.
. Weakened by abuse before & on the way to this place.
. A crowd - Around the edge of the circle area.
. Many - and they were individuals large and strong.
. Equipped with the most heinous weapons that could be dreamed up.
. Angry and passionately ready to strike.
. Not only were they ready but they did strike.
. They threw at the man all they had at once and non stop. The man took all the full force alone.
The crowd/enemy: all the devil's forces together.
The Man: Jesus Christ our Savior on the Cross.
And He did it for you and for me.
