A Question for Jesus





In my walk with the Lord I have had times where something concerned me to the point that I would say to myself or to others, “I’ll ask Jesus when I see Him.”

One I would like to ask Him deals with why He submitted Himself to the horrors of being scourged and the severe trauma of being crucified like a criminal.

“Lord, why did You put yourself through such humiliation? The scourging tore Your skin to shreds. You were so weak the soldiers found someone to carry your cross. They drove nails into your ankles and into your hands. The soldiers gambled to see who received your clothes. Your friends abandoned you. The crowd mocked and taunted You. Yet, You were perfect; You did nothing to deserve that treatment. WHY?”

Jesus will look at me with eyes of compassion, reach around me with His strong arms and draw me close to Himself. He will speak softly, “I did it because I love you. My Father and I want you to be with us in paradise someday. I took all your sins and those of all other people upon myself so you may be able to enter into My home and live forever. I love you that much.”

  1. Beautiful post! I too ask WHY, and trust that he will answer all questions before we even ask them.

  4. God's Grace so abounding and abundant we cannot fathom its extent until we ask, "Forgive me?"
