Thanks for another great entry! “Get the dying over with.” Yes indeed. The Lord gave me a powerful revelation once between the difference of choosing to die willingly on our cross, or God having to send men to come and hasten our death. From John 19:
“Because the Jews did not want the bodies left on the crosses during the Sabbath, they asked Pilate to have the legs broken and the bodies taken down. The soldiers therefore came and broke the legs of the first man who had been crucified with Jesus, and then those of the other. But when they came to Jesus and found that HE WAS ALREADY DEAD…”
Jesus chose to die, and as His disciples we should take our cue from the Master, otherwise God may permit the cruel hands of men to come to break our legs to hasten a death we should choose willingly. As you stated, LIFE follows death.
