BCC-Fever - Bethesda Community Church

The purpose for which the U Church exists is to provide a beacon of light in our Community, our City, our State, our Nation, and across the entire World.

The U Church is an extension of Christ – AS WE ARE THE BODY – to the believer and the non-believer alike. We do, therefore, extend Love – endless and unconditional – to the end that every soul in our path will accept Christ as his or her personal Savior, and continue to seek Godly and Biblical counsel toward mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being. The U Church will grow on the resonating of One Voice spreading One Clarion call: WE SEE YOU…WE HEAR YOU…WE LOVE YOU! WE WANT YOU AT THE U!!!!

"It is finished." ~John 19:29 & 30

John recalls the sacrifice of the Passover Lamb in Exodus 12 in this passage. Hyssop is a small plant that was used to sprinkle the blood of the Passover Lamb on the doorposts of the Hebrews (Exodus 12:22). John continues in 19:33-34: "But when they came to Jesus and saw he was already dead, they did not break His legs," recalling the instruction in Exodus 12:46 concerning the Passover Lamb. He died at the ninth hour (three o'clock in the afternoon), about the same time as the Passover lambs were slaughtered in the Temple. Christ became the Passover Lamb, as written by Paul: "For Christ our Passover lamb has been sacrificed" (I Corinthians 5:7). The innocent Lamb was slain for our sins, so that we might be forgiven. The sixth word is Jesus' recognition that His suffering is over and His task is completed.

This is the SHOUTING WORD! No great dialogue or pre cursor needed.

"Jesus called out with a loud voice, "Father, into your hands I commend my spirit." When he had said this, he breathed His last." ~Luke 23:46

SURRENDER

This moment reminds us of the way Jesus lived His life, always placing the Father’s will above His own and likewise this is how we as Believers must live our lives: through intimacy in relationship with the Father, complete trust, and total surrender.

When Jesus cried out to God in agony, in desolation, in isolation, it was at this moment when Jesus prayed to His father – the same way we should pray to God when we are agonized, when we feel desolate and isolated from Him. Reaching out to Him in the only manner that matters, through prayer and supplication, seeking His will, entrusting Him with our fears and doubts – casting all our cares on Him because he cares for us.

Your intimate relationship with God is even more solidified with the knowing and the ability to trust Him completely – trusting Him, giving over our will to His, for His care and protection of us. No relationship can be sustained without complete trust in the other individual and even more so with God – the God who created us, the God who knew us from the beginning, the God that gives us purpose, the God who sustains us, the God who provides for us….That God.

And in trusting Him, we are able to totally surrender to Him – we find ourselves many times trying to do things on our own and trying to “make it work”, when all along He’s right there waiting…Waiting for our total submission to His will because “He knows the plans that He has for us, thoughts of good, not of evil, to bring us to our expected end”. In this very moment, Jesus surrendered His human spirit, in order to return to His divine nature and life with the Father beyond His natural death.

There was peace in the surrender, there was a calmness in the surrender, and there was serenity in the surrender.

"I thirst." ~John 19:28

5. Humanity

This is Jesus' one true word of self-suffering. By this, we know that Jesus, while being God, was yet just as human as each of us. We gain strength, in this understanding, of what we can endure. Being beaten does not equate to being broken...Thirst does not equate to emptiness.

We see here, Jesus, our greatest example of how to handle suffering. He makes mention, but never hesitates in His commitment to God.

We must press on...Through hard times, tribulations, trials... knowing that we are strong enough to withstand every blow, every whip, every thorn, every mountain, every cross, every mocking. We may grow weary, hungry, thirsty... But we know that we can always find complete satisfaction through Jesus Christ. We must proclaim that although our bodies may thirst for meat, our souls thirst after Christ... Just as the dear panteth after the water.

Jesus did not get water, but even with the burning, bitter flavor of vinegar upon His lips, he continued to endure. A man of one request... Unmet, but still he persevered.

Know today that whatever you may be going through now... However empty it may leave you feeling... YOU WERE BUILT TO LAST! You will make it through until God meets every hunger, every need, every desire, every thirst...

And you shall...

"And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, ‘Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani’? That is to say, 'My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me'?"

~Matthew 27:46

4. ENCOURAGE YOUR SELF

His fourth Word is the opening line of Psalm 22, and thus his cry from the Cross recalls the cry of Israel, and of all innocent persons who suffer. Psalm 22 of David makes a striking prophecy of the crucifixion of the Messiah at a time when crucifixion was not known to exist: "They have pierced my hands and my feet, they have numbered all my bones" (22:16-17). The Psalm continues: "They divide my garments among them, and for my vesture they cast lots" (22:18).

How often have we been in a dead situation and remembered a song or a scripture that we heard in the past? How often have we recalled a testimony of a church member or family member? Some non believers would have you believe that The Father turned his back on The Son... But in the Bible, it is before proclaimed that the Son shall not be forsaken.

To the contrary, in His lowest hour... When in His humanity He was hurting and breathing His last, Jesus actually found faith to encourage Himself all the more. He then lifted up His voice to quote the lyrics of an old song.

Jesus not only remembered the lyric, but the situation... Where Israel found no escape from Earthly agony, and it seemed that God had forsaken His people. (Cont in comments)

"When Jesus therefore saw his mother, and the disciple standing by, whom he loved, he saith unto his mother, Woman, behold thy son! Then saith he to the disciple, Behold thy mother! And from that hour that disciple took her unto his own home."

~John 19:26 & 27

3. Love

The question is posed "What greater love is there than a man who would lay down His life for a friend?" My answer...a man who would continue to provide for the living of that friend while He himself is yet dying.

Yet, here we find Jesus showing us that love always reaches for another level. As He is hanging, dying, and so by a horrible manner, Jesus looks down upon His friend, and upon His mother, and would not leave them without the comfort of a loved one.

This is surely a great lesson for those of us who have lost connection with our families, or our loved ones. There is always time to reestablish love in every relationship.

And how better to establish this love first in your heart before reaching out, than to follow this example. While in our greatest times of suffering, we should be yet concerned with the physical state, emotional state, mental state, and spiritual state of our loved ones. How often do we stress our relationships by our lack of concern for one another? Certainly Jesus could have chosen to make a far more self centered point. He could have pointed to His own suffering, but He instead focused on the pain of others. (Cont in comments)

"Truly, I say to you, today you will be with me in paradise."

~Luke 23:43

2. Paradise

We progress now in forgiveness, to personalization. We find Jesus hanging next to a man who is surely guilty of the crimes of which he has been convicted. But at this hour, as all others mock Jesus, even as he and Jesus suffer together, this man has an immediate faith that Jesus can save him.

He doesn't ask for Jesus to do anything but "remember" him.

How many of us have felt forgotten, pushed aside, thrown away, all alone? Have you not yet come to the realization that JESUS ALWAYS REMEMBERS YOU? Have faith today that for every trial, for every tribulation, for every suffering, Jesus has reserved a place in paradise with your name on it. It is yours for the asking. No longer should we focus on the people who wrong us, no longer should we focus on our circumstances... But we must now focus on the promise that is before us.

I am reminded of a story of a homeless man who was invited into to an illustrious banquet. All of the people of great status sat around staring as he walked through the corridors. Finally, he came to a table... With one seat, and upon the place setting, sat a card... WITH HIS NAME ON IT. (Cont in comments)
