JESUS IS WILLING
But God showed his great love for us by
sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners.
Romans 5:8 (NLT)
Have you ever wondered if Jesus would come and die for you on the cross if you were the only person on earth? I have wondered this and found out that the answer is yes, He would have. I am going to share with you a very personal experience that happened to me...
My riding coach told me a while back that Jesus told her even if she was the only person on earth, He would have still come and died for her on the cross. She then said to me, "Jesus would have died for you as well even if you were the only person on earth." After I heard that, I always had the question in my head... "Jesus, would you have come and died for me if I was the only person on earth?"
Later on at a Benny Hinn meeting in Toronto, I was worshiping Jesus and that same question came back to me. So I asked, "Jesus, would you come and die for me even if I was the only person on earth?" I heard His words clearly inside me say, "I love you Fiji, I would have come and died for you on the cross even if you were the only person on earth." It broke me and touched me deeply. "Jesus, you would go through all that you have went through just for me?" His answer was, "yes"! Wow, can you imagine that?
This experience was very personal to me and it changed me for eternity.
No matter what you are going through right now, always remember Jesus loves you and He came to die for you on the cross. You are no longer a sinner or a victim but a victor in Jesus Christ.
I challenge you this day to ask Jesus the same question and I can promise that He will speak to you. The word of God says, "my sheep hear my voice"! Ask Him and hear from Him yourself.
“God loves each of us as if there were only one of us."
Editor's Note: Not long after meeting Fiji, she on her "own Initiative" (I'm convinced it was at the Spirit's prompting) invited herself to a Good Friday Service. It was there that she learned about the LOVE of Christ for what may have been her very first time. She listened intently to the message and afterwards exclaimed, "In other religions, it's the people who make offerings to appease their gods but with your God He is the one who sacrificed Himself on behalf of the people!" It was at that point that Fiji began the journey to understanding God's LOVE - that it wasn't something she could earn by doing the right thing. Jesus willingly died for her!
Fiji came as an international student to Canada and accepted Jesus as her personal Saviour when she was in college. She is currently working at a horse farm in Alliston, ON. She enjoys horse back riding, painting and sharing the love of Jesus to those around her.
A favourite verse of Fiji's:
Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.
3 John 1:2
