JESUS CHRIST was a Man of sorrows, who was acquainted with grief. ~ (Isaiah 53:3)

Jesus was a combination of God and man when He came to save us - a great mystery. He left heaven where He was worshipped to live among us. He related with those who were around Him at the time, suffered as they did, and was grieved more than any of us could ever endure.

Jesus wept as well (John 11:35) when He saw Mary and the Jews weeping over the loss of Lazarus.  He wept (Luke 19:41-42) when He was touched with a tender concern for the evil that was about to befall Jerusalem. You can trust Jesus to wipe away your tears when you are grieved.  He understands what you are going through.

"GOD visits the iniquity of those who hate Him upon their children, unto the third and fourth generation". (Exodus 20:5) - VERSE EXPLAINED

God said He would pass the judgment executed on the wicked down to their future generations. Then in Ezekiel 33:14-15, He said if a sinner who deserves to be punished turns from his sin and practises justice and righteousness, he shall surely live, and not die. 
Sadly the wicked tend to pass down idolatry and disobedient practices to their children, who then carry on where their parents left off. Most people who refuse the Gift of Salvation are facing one challenge or the other today for the sins of their ancestors. Besides, if you are not yet saved, there are chances that you are already walking in your ancestors’ shoes.
The only way you can turn from your sin, practice justice and righteousness, and escape the judgment of God for the sins of your ancestors is to accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour, and remain in Him. The blood of Jesus cleanses all sins and guilt. When you surrender to Him, you become a new creature. The Holy Spirit then dwells in you to keep you from stumbling.  No one is capable of living a life of holiness without the help of the Holy Spirit.

God does not change what He utters (Psalm 89:34).  What shields us from His judgement is the Blood of Jesus.

GOD's strength is made perfect in weakness. ~ (2 Corinthians 12:9)

We feel the manifestation of God's power more when we are weak, or almost giving up. Why is this?  It is so because God desires for us to see Him as the Source of our blessings and salvation. 

When we feel we are strong enough to do things ourselves, we do not recognize the need for divine help. When we are weak, we are strong by the Grace of God. As His creatures, we will always be limited in strength and compelled to depend on Him. It is only when we acknowledge that we need Him in our weakness that He will show Himself strong.

JESUS CHRIST is a High Priest who is able to sympathize with our weaknesses; who was tempted in every way just as we are, yet was without sin. ~ (Hebrews 4:15)

Jesus Christ knows what it is like when things are not well with us. He once felt what we feel, and understands when we are hurt. He knows what it is like to be hungry (Mark 11:12-14); He felt hunger pangs. He knows what it is like to be tempted, betrayed, disgraced, persecuted, and falsely accused of an offence. We can boldly approach the throne of grace to seek for help and pardon when we struggle with sins. He will sympathize with us in our weaknesses, trials and miseries. The important thing is to admit our faults, and recognize that we need help.

How Can I Receive Jesus Christ As My Lord and Saviour, Today?
