We have broken the worldly and moral laws with such irreverence and unconscionable coldness that our adversaries want to punish us. They want to give us the death penalty; but before that, they want us to suffer every humiliation imaginable and every torture possible while they "prolong" our death. Their anger is beyond livid and they hate even the thought of us. Then someone we know, knows if given the chance, we could be someone very special, someone HE would bring home to meet HIS family. As we watch what they do to HIM, knowing it should be us, fear goes away and there are no words that can describe our repentant contriteness. We begin to love HIM with the love HE has for us. Isaiah 53:5, "HE was wounded for our transgressions and crushed for our iniquities". There would never be a second that we would not think of HIM, LOVE HIM AND HONOR HIM. IS JESUS JUST A PAINTING ON THE WALL, A STATUE ON A CROSS OR A NAME IN THE BIBLE? OR IS HE THAT FRIEND THAT WE ARE GOING HOME WITH?
