Are You Gambling At The Cross?
On the day that Jesus Christ was hanging on the cross for our sins and to provide the Way for us to return home there were men at the foot of the cross throwing dice and gambling as if this life had no meaning. They had no regard nor respect for the life of Jesus in fact they mocked Him with accusations and words.
What is the difference between us today in gambling our daily lives with no meaning nor purpose as these soldiers were doing at the foot of the cross? Are we not showing the same disrespect to Jesus for what He did for us when we lie, cheat, gossip, and suppress the poor? What is the difference between these soldiers at the foot of the cross in making false accusations about others when we do not know the Truth? What is the difference in these soldiers at the foot of the cross than us when we put our own desires in front of others?
This is what is laying heavily on my heart; “Do we need another crucifixion of Jesus Christ or was the first enough?” Everytime we mistreat others and only think of ourselves we might as well be gambling with the soldiers at the foot of the cross. I challenge you today to not gamble your life away at the foot of the cross and learn how to serve others in order to serve God instead of driving in the nails on the cross..amen
