I am watching The Passion of the Christ with my family. I haven’t seen it in three or four years. As I flinch and tears well up, I cannot imagine someone going through that for me. The other day a few things went wrong in my life…someone has betrayed me in the workplace. Nothing huge, but enough to hurt my feelings. Then another someone someplace got their nose out of joint because of something they perceived I didn’t do. Then my car died with a huge price tag associated with the repair. And I’m a fallen solider.

What little something we get all upset over and Jesus took our sin even when we curse him, moan and groan and complain. When we murmur or get angry (stay angry)…he is right there because he died for our sins.

There is saving grace that comes from Jesus’ death on the cross. The grace that changes our eternity. Then there is common grace that is a daily occurence. Just remember that our daily acts of grace show people who we really are. Are we a hypocritical judge of others or are we doing what Jesus wanted us to do in Matthew 25:35, 36 — For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me
