This is to all you bigheads. You know, the ones who are so full of themselves they have bigheads ( they are full of pride).
Before you go around participating in your favourite hobby, bragging about all of your wonderful, magnificent amazing accomplishments compare it to what Christ did.
Jesus suffered being unjustly beaten and tortured for all of humanity, what have you done to compare with that?
Jesus suffered the agony of being nailed to a cross and hanging there for six long horrendous hours for all of those willing to accept His gift of His precious blood is the key to Heaven. What have you done to compare with that?
Jesus willingly stayed on the cross and watched His beloved mother watch Him suffer a shameful death. What have you done to compare with that?
Jesus suffered the vile ones laughing at Him, spitting on Him and making fun of Him so that we who accept Him as our Savior can become citizens of Heaven. What have you done to compare with that?
Jesus died so that we who accept Him as our Heavenly Brother are adopted into an amazing Heavenly family. What have you done to compare with that?
“When I survey the wondrous cross, On which the Prince of Glory died, My richest gain I count but loss, And pour contempt on all my pride.” Isaac Watts
Kinda brings you down off of your high horse doesn’t it?
I know it does me when I begin to become bigheaded.
Prayer: Thank you Jesus Christ Yasha ( The Lord my Savior) for meditating upon Your awesomeness for what You have so graciously done for me to wipe clean all of my filthy sins upon my repentance. It helps to keep me humble in comparison to what You have done for me compared to what I have done for You and for myself. I adore You in Your awesome name. Amen.
May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.
