Hurting Our Saviour

ďAnd the Lord turned, and looked upon Peter. And Peter remembered the word of the Lord, how he had said unto him, Before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice. And Peter went out, and wept bitterly.Ē

Luke 22: 61, 62 King James Version

Many times we hurt the Heart of our Saviour. Most of the time we are not even aware of it. When we say something unkind or cruel words to someone, it hurts Jesus. The verse says ďAnd the Lord turned, and looked upon PeterĒ. One day, Jesus is going to turn and look at us. O how I want to see happiness in His Precious Eyes when He looks at me. I donít ever want to do anything or say anything to hurt my Wonderful Saviour.

The verse says that Peter wept bitterly. If Peter was like me, then he was feeling nauseous for hurting Jesus and was weeping for hurting Him. Even while Peter was weeping, Jesus was crying. We need to understand that Jesus has feelings. If He didnít, He would never have suffered such mental and physical abuse and torture for us.

A dear friend called me yesterday and we talked for about twenty minutes about hurting Jesus. The more I fall in love with Jesus, the more my heart breaks when I hurt Him. He Loved me when I was in the garbage dump of life. He lifted me up and removed the stench of filth from my life and gave me a new heart. There are no words to describe the love in my heart for my Best Friend, Jesus. What a Saviour! What a Friend!

We get upset when someone hurts us. Dear friends, we need to get a lot more upset when we hurt Jesus. Have you trusted Jesus as your Personal Saviour? Are you in love with the Best Friend you will ever have, a Friend Who will never leave you?
