stay near the cross
SCRIPT FOR TODAY: Double Entendre (meaning)…(1) A prescription (script) prescribed, by The Great Physician, for us to take each day, for our benefit and (2) A script written, for the purpose of giving direction and guidance to us, for our everyday life, in the way and manner we ought to be conducting our daily lives, given to us, by the Great playwright, in the sky, The Author of all that is good, right, just and holy. Blessings…
SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 04/25- “Mother Mary, Aunt Mary And, Friend And Follower Mary!” (John 19:25)
Premise Question: What is the message of hope and strong source of strength, with the much needed and appropriate help, for what we may have to face or go through, at any moment and time, in our lives, that we can extrapolate and draw, from the picture that’s being painted, with words for us, here in this passage of scripture?
Standing near the cross were Jesus’ mother, and his mother’s sister, Mary (the wife of Clopas), and Mary Magdalene. (John 19:25 NLT)
Standing together at the base of the cross, huddled close, while holding onto each other tightly and supporting one another, as they looked up at Jesus hanging there on His cross, were His Mother Mary, His Aunt Mary and His friend and follower, Mary of Magdala. (John 19:25 PDCP)
Bottom Line: There are going to be times and occasions, where we ourselves or those that we are close to, are going to experience great times of stress, hardships, difficult and hard to comprehend situations and circumstances, trials and turmoil, sickness and affliction, broken relationships, being wounded, with emotional, mental or physical pain, disappointments, and even perhaps an untimely or totally unexpected death, in its various forms and ways. During any and all of those experiences and times, we may not have the perfect resolve or answer, but what we do have, is each other; therefore, we can, should and must be there for each other—on every occasion that comes along, supporting and encouraging one another with comfort, peace and strength, while exhibiting hope and giving our help and love in the practical and appropriate ways that we have the ability to do so. Just being there with and for each other, availing and travailing, by making ourselves available, as a true loving and deeply moved and concerned friend, who will come alongside, to be comforting, supporting, bearing each other up and undergirding one another during those truly difficult times, is absolutely vital, as well as necessary. Not to mention, that we now have The Great Comforter, to bring the comforting help and support necessary and needed, to each other, through each other, for each other! Blessings…
