God identifies with you (with Vinesong)

May 6, 2019

God identifies with you. The Scripture speaks about taking up your cross and following Jesus - the cross is not just us identifying with Him, but Jesus identifying with us. When I was in prison for Bible smuggling, I felt so abandoned by God. In the Lord's Prayer it says, 'Who is in heaven...', I argued, "You are in heaven, but I am in a stinking filthy cell, don't You understand?" Then God reminded me of the truth: He sent His Son to die a criminal's death. Jesus understood my pain - He identified with my suffering.
