Poured Out His Soul


Church Family,

What a powerful time of prayer that God provided last night, WHEW, Glory to God! In today's bible reading I'm reminded of a movie, Schindler's list. He helped purchase Jews and give them jobs to prevent their death during World War II. At the end of the movie when everyone was celebrating, he saw all that he had and wondered if he could have used his remaining possessions better. He thought, I could have used this to purchase one more. No story will ever match Jesus'. This morning we read of a powerful display of God's wrath and love.

Isaiah 53:12 Therefore I will divide him a portion with the many, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong, because he poured out his soul to death and was numbered with the transgressors; yet he bore the sin of many, and makes intercession for the transgressors.

Read the words of Jesus as He approaches His death.

Matthew 23:37 “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the city that kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to it! How often would I have gathered your children together as a hen gathers her brood under her wings, and you were not willing!

Like Schindler, Jesus was willing to rescue those that are being oppressed by sin and hate. Yet, Jesus did not fail to give it all to reach those who are caught in Sin. Even as He is pouring out His soul unto death, He is still concerned with the lostness of the ones who are killing Him. Oh, that our hearts would be so transformed by the power of the gospel, that we would be ever thankful for those that God has saved and always desire to pour ourselves out until every soul is saved. May we long to see every soul saved, rather than cursing those along the way that reject God. Pray that God would give our church the heart of Christ. Pray that God would change my heart to like this. May God have mercy on my soul for not always being this way.

Reminders:

1) After work this afternoon please come and help pressure wash the tables and chairs at the church. The more workers, the quicker the job is completed. Thank you in advance for helping.

2) We broke the 1500 mark for people invited to church, Praise God! While we are measuring the goal by numbers, the real goal is for every believer to be a witness for God. What a joy it is to be faithful to God.

Love, Serve, Go
