TOPIC: YOU WERE ON HIS MIND
BASIC SCRIPTURE: HEBREWS 12: 1-8
1 Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us,
2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
3 For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds.
4 Ye have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin.
5 And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaketh unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when thou art rebuked of him:
6 For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth.
7 If ye endure chastening, God dealeth with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chasteneth not?
8 But if ye be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are ye bastards, and not sons.

Then Jesus Christ was going through the suffering that He went through, what was He thinking of? He was thinking about you. He was thinking about me. Our scripture for today shows us that for the joy that was set before Him, He endured the cross and despised the shame.

He did not see you as the sinful twisted person that you may think you are. He saw you as His true child. Someone sang a song that I love so much: “Beautiful; That’s How Mercy Save Me, Not What I Was, But What I Could Be, That’s How Mercy Saw Me.” God in His love and grace saw you through the Blood of His Son.
He told Himself (paraphrased), “If only I can send My Son to take the place of this precious soul, and he finds out that my Son died for him, he will turn to Me and become a new person.
It was your future that was on His mind all the while AS HE HUNG ON THAT CROSS! The soldiers (He created them), whipped Him and teased Him. Wow! They spat on Him and mocked Him saying: He saved many, now He can’t save Himself. But He actually went to the cross to SAVE MANY MORE, INCLUDING YOU.
Listen: It was not the nails that hung Him on that cross! IT WAS LOVE! Yes! Love WERE THE ‘NAILS.’ The Bible says, He was like a sheep being led by its shearers and was dumb.” Jesus could not talk! He opened His mouth and guess what, “Father forgive them, for they know not what they do… Love came out of His mouth!
Why? Because of you and I You were on His mind. And as 2021 ends, it’s time for you to TRUST HIM AGAIN and daily! It’s time for you to begin to appreciate this love and sacrifice.
He has done too much for you to FAIL! His arms are open wide in love and He is waiting to USE YOUR LIFE To SHOW THE WORLD THAT LOVE CANNOT FAIL and you cannot end in shame! Amen and amen!
PRAYER POINTS: Take Song 3: Amazing grace…
Amazing grace (how sweet the sound)
that saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found,
was blind, but now I see.
2 ‘Twas grace that taught my heart to fear,
and grace my fears relieved;
how precious did that grace appear
the hour I first believed!
3 Through many dangers, toils and snares
I have already come:
’tis grace has brought me safe thus far,
and grace will lead me home.
4 The Lord has promised good to me,
his word my hope secures;
he will my shield and portion be
as long as life endures.
5 Yes, when this flesh and heart shall fail,
and mortal life shall cease:
I shall possess, within the veil,
a life of joy and peace.
6 The earth shall soon dissolve like snow,
the sun forbear to shine;
but God, who called me here below,
will be forever mine.
