MORNINGTIME 3871by Benjamin Munsell on October 29, 2021
All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on (Christ) the iniquity of us all. He was oppressed, and He was afflicted, yet He opened not His Mouth: He is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so He openeth not His Mouth. Isaiah 53:6-7. Many believe that Christ knew everything about every day of His Time and Life on earth. Like a choreographer has everything about a scene already laid out for making a movie, and all Christ had to do was Obediently choose to "follow the script". He still had to choose Obedience, and He did, and literally, "Saved the world", or at least He offered all the world Salvation. Others believe that Jesus, the Christ, fully Knew and Understood His Mission to die on the cross to Save mankind, but that He did not know beforehand how each day would play out, but that He did move in absolute Obedience to the moment-by-moment direction as the Holy Spirit led Him. This would be the same way you and I, as Believers, follow the leading of the Holy Spirit each day, all day, every day. Christ Obeyed PERFECTLY, as an example to us, that we too can strive to Obey as He did. In short, He Knew the end result before He ever came to earth, just not the daily Obedience of do this and do that until the Holy Spirit told Him. Either Way, Christ TOTALLY AND FULLY OBEYED ALL THAT THE FATHER ASKED HIM TO DO. Here's the point. Just as the Lord took care of every single detail of Christ's Life and Christ Obeyed, He wants us to Trust the Lord with every single detail of OUR lives as we too have the choice to Obey. We, not Perfect, Christ, always Perfect, AND THAT'S OUR GOAL, TO WALK TOWARDS PERFECTION ONE OBEDIENCE AT A TIME. Our Obedience may not be Perfect on this side, BUT WHAT A GOAL TO STRIVE FOR. Just learn to Trust the Lord as much as you possible can, every day, and you too will hear those Words, "Well Done, Good and Faithful Servant"...... and you will, Be Blessed.
