Hello, God has given me something in 2 Kings 4:15-17 which says,
“About this time next year,” Elisha said, “you will hold a son in your arms.” “No, my lord,” she objected. “Don’t mislead your servant, O man of God!” But the woman became pregnant, and the next year about the same time she gave birth to a son, just as Elisha had told her.”
This was great for the woman, Elisha promised her a son, and although she didn’t believe at first, she still got a son. This reminds me of Abraham and Isaac, Isaac was Abrahams promised son. Sarah didn’t believe they would have a son, but they did. Jesus was promised to us. The people living in the New Testament knew that someone would come save them, they only thought that He would save them from the Romans. Jesus a lot more. He saved all of us from our sins! But, for the woman, it was really nice to have a son.
Jesus died on the cross for us. He was the promised one prophesied about in the old testament. He saved us all from our sin, He gave His own life for us. Jesus was the ultiment promised son, He saved us from all the sin, and punishment that would have been on us, and He took it on Himself, and set us free… into His pasture, and free from sin!! Some people see this as a simple message, and say, ‘Yeah, yeah, yeah we’ve all heard That message before. We need to look farther than the gospel, and see what the world has to offer.” Woops. Wrong idea, the gospel is all we need, we’re sheep, and we have the wonderful pasture of the gospel, that Jesus died and gave His life for us, and some other people are saying, “Yeah, this green stuff is OK, but look at that delicious can over there, yum.” We don’t eat cans! We eat the wonderful grass!
For us, this means that we have grass to eat, we have the gospel, and we should share it with others who decided that trash was better than grass, that fun and games are better than the gospel. We have the gospel. We know that Jesus died on the cross for us, and gave His own life for us, then rose again three days later. And I hope that it’s the best news you ever heard.
I’ve got a question for you, are you a grass eater, or a trash eater?
Peace and love, Joy Cleveland
