Run to the cross 44

Out of the door with a bit of energy. My legs feel okay but they must look awful as they are covered in bites from the rivers and the bogs I have wandered through. Along the river I run, I pass families, couples and many people out for a walk.

It seems this isolation has made everyone explore their local woods. As long as everyone keeps their distance there shouldn’t be a problem, but I have seen people just barge through and have no thought for the people that are dying.

Mark 15:34-37

Mark 15:34-37
34 And at three in the afternoon Jesus cried out in a loud voice, “Eloi, Eloi, lema sabachthani?” (which means “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”).

35 When some of those standing near heard this, they said, “Listen, he’s calling Elijah.” 36 Someone ran, filled a sponge with wine vinegar, put it on a staff, and offered it to Jesus to drink. “Now leave him alone. Let’s see if Elijah comes to take him down,” he said. 37 With a loud cry, Jesus breathed his last.

There is a bridge that crosses the river. Some people don’t take it and they are quite happy on one side, but what if the world on the other side is so much better and free from worry, free from bad things. Well Jesus is the bridge and He gave Himself for everyone. Once you are reborn you are not just waiting for death to take you to heaven, but you are re-born into a job where you have to help to create His kingdom. You have to work for a daily wage every day.

Most people thought Jesus was done. That His last breath would be His last breath, but they didn’t know He is the source of life. If you are feeling down, forgotten, worried, sick, or just not right – pray to God through Jesus and ask for the comforter to come and heal you, you never know, you may end up running across the tree trunk effortlessly like I did.

Dear Lord, heal people in Jesus name.
Dear Lord, heal people in Jesus name.
Dear Lord, heal people in Jesus glorious name. Amen.
