If you believed…
“CRUCIFY HIM, CRUCIFY HIM!” yelled the angry crowd on the darkest day of time. I can’t help but to wonder how they would’ve acted differently had they believed and know that this was the Lord of Lords. That this was part of the Godhead who was there when the world was created. How would they have acted differently? Yet they wanted to see him die. Some who even waved palm branches and sung of his praises were so quick to turn when it was no longer what the crowd was doing. People who saw miracles and wonders and maybe even received them personally, now gazed upon a man who had been praised for what he did and not for whom he was. The man they loved for what he did and not for whom he was. What would have been different if they would have known? What would have been done differently if they had really believed in who he was?
I believe this is a question that can be asked to us today.
What would we do differently if we really believed in who he is?
How would you honor him differently today if you knew he is Elohim, the creator of heaven and earth, who was and is and is to come?
How would you bless him if you believed he is El-Shaddai, the God almighty of blessings?
How would you worship Adonai if he were really your Lord and Master?
How would you trust differently today if you believed that he is Jehovah-Jireh, who sees your needs and provides for them?
How about if you trusted him as Jehovah-Rapha, who is your healer?
How would you live today if you were sanctified by Jehovah-M’Kaddesh?
What kind of victory jig would you have danced today had you believed him to be Jehovah-Nissi, your deliverer?
How much better would you rest today if you really knew him as Jehovah-Shalom, the prince of peace?
Do you love him for who he is today? Does your life show it? Does your heart show it? Do your words show it?
What would you do differently today if you really believed?
