BE OF GOOD CHEER BIBLE STUDY

 

CAN WE BE OF GOOD CHEER IN A WORLD OF PAIN AND SORROW?

Did you know that Jesus took away our illness and bore sicknesses?

Matthew 8:17
That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias (Isaiah) the prophet, saying, Himself (Jesus) took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses …  

This is what Isaiah said who was quoted:

Isaiah 53:4
Surely He hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem Him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
 

 
Peter echoed these words.
 

1 Peter 2:24
Who His own self BARE OUR SINS IN HIS OWN BODY on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.
 

Tho ... Jesus was WITHOUT sin.

1 Peter 2:21-22
For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps: Who did no sin, neither was guile found in His mouth
... 

So, this is saying that Jesus took OUR SINS as being His own and was punished for us in PLACE of us.

AND HE STILL CAN AND WILL TODAY

What a true FRIEND we have in Jesus huh? …

His act was that of a friend taking the blame for a crime that we committed, which had us sentenced to death.

THAT is LOVE.

John 15:13
Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
 

 
Funny how we know this and most still refuse to take up their own Cross and completely follow Him.
 

Matthew 10:38-39
And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me. He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it …

Most have no prob enjoying the good fruits of being a Christian, but tend to lift their brow when they find they have to surrender things that THEY enjoy from man’s world for this FRIEND who took THEIR blame and died for them.

It is like many “good weather” friends we have here on earth who are happy as a lark when they get THEIR way, but when we say NO … They turn on us.

This is why Jesus said …

Matthew 15:8
This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me …
 

 Man just keeps choosing THEIR way over God’s way. They say AMEN loudly and proudly when they hear TRUTH such as Put God first, Love all, forgive all, etc. and step right out and do their own thing as if they knew not what they were taught by our Lord.  

Lemme share a couple quick stories from the Bible with ya which may hold the answer.

Most have heard of a miracle where Jesus fed about 5000 …

Matthew 14:15-21
And when it was evening, His disciples came to Him, saying, This is a desert place, and the time is now past; send the multitude away, that they may go into the villages, and buy themselves victuals. But Jesus said unto them, They need not depart; give ye them to eat. And they say unto him, We have here but five loaves, and two fishes. He said, Bring them hither to me. And He commanded the multitude to sit down on the grass, and took the five loaves, and the two fishes, and looking up to Heaven, He blessed, and brake, and gave the loaves to His disciples, and the disciples to the multitude. And they did all eat, and were filled: and they took up of the fragments that remained twelve baskets full. And they that had eaten were about five thousand men, beside women and children
.

Then a lil later … He did the same thing and fed another 4000:

Matthew 15:32-33
Then Jesus called His disciples unto Him, and said, I have compassion on the multitude, because they continue with me now three days, and have nothing to eat: and I will not send them away fasting, lest they faint in the way. And His disciples say unto Him, Whence should we have so much bread in the wilderness, as to fill so great a multitude?
 

 Those who SAW when Jesus fed the 5000 questioned Him as to how the 4000 would be fed. They SAW the miracle and FORGOT.

Jesus would later have to address this issue:

Matthew 16:6-10
Then Jesus said unto them, Take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees. And they reasoned among themselves, saying, It is because we have taken no bread. Which when Jesus perceived, he said unto them, O ye of little faith, why reason ye among yourselves, because ye have brought no bread? Do ye not yet understand, neither remember the five loaves of the five thousand, and how many baskets ye took up? Neither the seven loaves of the four thousand, and how many baskets ye took up?

Do we do the same thing in our lives? Do we see miracles done for us by our Lord who victoriously brings us out of troubles and then later, when in distress, FORGET what He had done and CHOOSE to live in confusion and doubt, depending on OURSELVES?

If so, why do ya suppose we do this?

Obviously we forget cuz we get so wound up in the trial that is before us that we seem to forget what our Lord told us …

Matthew 11:28
Come unto ME, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I WILL give you rest.
 

But, how do we bring this to mind DURING TRIALS?

Here is an idea … Post reminder notes all over your house. Lil notes with Scripture EVERY place you go daily. Not only will this assist you during trials but may help you prevent falling into traps.   

Here is my fav …

John 14:16
And I will pray the Father, and He shall give you another Comforter (Holy Spirit) that He may abide with you FOR EVER ...
 

We can be comforted during trials and tribulation FOREVER:

HEAR YOUR LORD MY FRIENDS …

John 16:33
These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have PEACE. In the world YE SHALL HAVE TRIBULATION: but BE OF GOOD CHEER; I have overcome the world.
 

What does Jesus mean by us being at peace cuz Jesus already overcame the world?

It is what we talked about earlier …

We have a true FRIEND in Jesus  ….

His act was that of a  FRIEND taking the blame for a crime that we committed, which HAD us sentenced to death.

John 15:13
Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
 

But now, we are FREE:

John 8:36
If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.
 

IF WE CHOOSE TO BE

Just know that Jesus already paid the price in FULL and that you need only follow Him. You WILL fall now and again as you try to baby step in to the Christian Walk and you will stumble as you run in this Spiritual warfare race. We MUST be patient as we are changed from within.

Hebrews 12:1
Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us RUN WITH PATIENCE THE RACE that is set before us.
 

Not only patient as far as carrying on along this Walk which is fraught with tribulations as an enemy of your soul seeks to devour your Faith as to possess your soul … But patient with YOU as well. After all, you have been REBORN and are learning how to walk a totally NEW WALK than you were taught by the world …

2 Corinthians 13:11
Finally, brethren, farewell. Be perfect,  BE OF GOOD COMFORT, be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of Love and Peace shall be with you.
