Jesus’ Portion






“ Therefore I will give him a portion among the great,

and he will divide the spoils with the strong, because he

poured out his life unto death, and was numbered with the

                       transgressors. For he bore the sins Of many, and made

                       intercession for the transgressors” Isaiah 53:12 (NIV)





God allows Jesus to share His home. Jesus Christ sits at the right hand of the Father because He gave up His life so that we may be considered sinless and enter into the realm of Heaven when God calls us.

But, in order to do this, Jesus had to endure accusations of stirring rebellion against the Roman government and overthrowing it.

At this writing, I am aware of two families who have lost a loved one. One was suddenly taken from us. But we know he was ready to go. He was a servant in the mission field. Last year he went on two missions trips. The other, a lady, had been ill for several months. Her diagnosis came as a shock. But, God called her home. She served where she could. Taking care of family members both where she lived and out of state. Both of these saintly people were able to serve their Lord because of what He did on Calvary.

Jesus received His reward from the Father because of what he endured. The Son chose to be counted as evil in order to allow us to be deemed worthy to enter God’s presence.
