Hello, God has given me something in 2 Kings 4:40-41 which says,
“The stew was poured out for the men, but as they began to eat it, they cried out, “O man of God, there is death in the pot!” And they could not eat it. Elisha said, “Get some flour.” He put it into the pot and said, “Serve it to the people to eat.” And there was nothing harmful in the pot.”
How did the death get into the pot? One of the servants found a wild vine, and he took some of its gourds, cut it up, and put it in the pot. That wild vine was the death, but the Man of God (Elisha) took some flour and the flour “cured” the stew from the death. For the people, they got to see a miracle, and get a free meal. It couldn’t have been that bad for them.
This is a good example of us. We are the pot, the devil puts in the wild vine, from birth. We were sinful, horrible, without help. But then, Jesus came. He came, as the flour, and He cleansed us, sucking up all the sinfulness in Himself, and dying on the cross for us. He puts the seed of love into our hearts when we accept Him as saviour. He loved (loves) us so much, that He gave His own life for us. John 3:16-17 says,
“For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only son, that whoever believe in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send His son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him.”
Jesus loved (loves) us so much. Go to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GzfPHnoT0-0 To watch a song about Jesus’ love.
Jesus on the cross for us, and gave His own life for us. He gave His life, even though we were sinful wretches, and couldn’t imagine anyone doing that for us, Jesus still died for us.
Peace and love, Joy Cleveland
