How Jesus Atones For My Shame

Guest Mako A. Nagasawa is a campus minister at Harvard and Boston College with the New Humanity Institute, and founding director of New Humanity Institute.

“Don’t you know how much I sacrificed for you???” Those words shaped my sense of self, duty, and how others experienced me. Who said that? My parents. Hearing it made me feel mixed. On the one hand, I was grateful for their sacrifices. I certainly benefited. On the other hand, I had my doubts about their motivations being self-sacrifice pure and simple.

Palestinians: Why Abbas Cannot Stop Funding Terrorists
For the record, this is not a defense of Palestinian Authority (PA) President Mahmoud Abbas or of funding terrorists. It is simply an explanation of what is taking place. Nonetheless, it is worth noting that the idea of ending payments to Palestinian terrorists and their families is a challenging one, to say the least. Old habits, especially of hate, are hard to break. The practice of paying salaries to terrorists and the families of “martyrs” is as old as the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO), which was founded in 1964.

PRAYING THE WILL OF MY FATHER

OUR GOD AND OUR KING.

MAY I LIVE IN A WAY THAT REFLECTS THE FACT THAT YOU MADE ME IN YOUR IMAGE? I WAS CREATED IN YOUR IMAGE JUST LIKE EVERYONE ELSE IN THIS WORLD. THEREFORE, ALL THAT I DO REFLECTS WHAT I BELIEVE ABOUT YOU MY CREATOR AND EVERYONE DESERVES TO BE TREATED AS I WANT TO BE TREATED—WITH LOVE AND RESPECT AS YOU DEFINE THEM.

I WILL TREAT EVERYONE WITH RESPECT AS A CHILD OF GOD.

I AM A CHILD OF THE MOST HIGH KING AND EVERYONE CAN COME INTO THIS SAME RELATIONSHIP WITH YOU THROUGH YESHUA. I AM NO BETTER THAN THEY ARE, FOR ALL HAVE SINNED AND FALL SHORT OF YOUR GLORY- ROMANS 3:23.
