Dear eSnowflakes,


The ending to Jesus' life on earth is tragic in its scope of inhumanity and injustice.  


We all know the story. 


Instead of the murder Barabbas being condemned to death by crucifixion, the innocent Jesus Christ was condemned.  


If one were to view the life of Jesus simply through the lens of Caesar, then yes his life was tragic in epic proportions; 


He was betrayed by one of his closest apostles;  


And betrayed by the crowd for he committed no sins or crimes;  


He spent the majority of his young life healing the sick, performing miracles and paving the way towards salvation,


Yet condemned to death with a crown of thorns on his head; 


And died on the cross, crucified.  


However, in terms of the Holy Spirit, Jesus' life on earth was inspired.  


He passed all his tests of character; 


Never gave in to Satan or sin.  


Most importantly Jesus obeyed the will of the Lord and sacrificed His life, in order to cleanse the world of original sin.  


Let us not let Jesus' sacrifice be in vain.  


Do not give footholds to sins, hate or Satan.  


Instead, love in fellowship as instructed by Christ and commanded by the Lord.  


And if you should sin, confess, repent and atone.  


Walk the path of salvation in the manner the Lord commands.  


Good luck with your tests of character in life 🙂
