He personally carried our sins in His body on the cross [willingly offering Himself on it, as on an altar of sacrifice], so that we might die to sin [becoming immune from the penalty and power of sin] and live for righteousness; for by His wounds you [who believe] have been healed. 1 Peter 2:24 Holy Bible Amplified Version
When Christ was hanging on the cross He was suffering ridicule by those who hated Him. Unimaginable agony in His body. Piercing heart ache watching His loved ones watch Him die and no doubt demons laughing at Him. Three days later He rose from grave and fulfilled Jehovahs prearranged glorious victory to bring all of His children into His family of every race, color and creed.
Talk about a turn of events huh?
“In a daring and beautiful creative reversal, God takes the worst we can do to Him and turns it into the very best he can do for us.”Malcolm Guite
Prayer: Thank you Jesus Go’el (The Lord is my Redeemer) that the worse possible manner of death known to the world was used to accomplish the most beautiful one in eternity. In Your amazing name I exalt You. Amen
May you be blessed with abundant joy in your heart filled with love and your life overflowing with laughter every day this year.
