"What should we do with Jesus? and they cried "Crucify Him!"
Yet we too are changeable - often we may blow with the wind, or flow with the situation as it is easer than swimming against the tide of public opinion.
Instead let us be Praising Him, the Lord of Glory, our Saviour Jesus!
|It was LOVE - LOVE that sent Jesus to the cross|
LOVE that made Him stay there, till it says:
"And when Jesus had cried with a loud voice, he said, Father, into thy hands I commend my spirit: and having said thus, he gave up the ghost." Luke 23:46
He was sinless perfect BUT He knows our struggles.. our cares, sorrows. Surely he hath born our sorrows and our grief"
|Satan thought He had won a victory on the cross .. he thought wrongly though... it was God's way of Salvation and Satan's defeat. It was at the cross that the first prophecy about Satan's defeat was fulfilled, one of many. See Genesis 3:15 |
As this verse above says - GREATER is He that is in You.. by faith if we have trusted in the LORD Jesus as Saviour we receive the Holy Spirit to work in our hearts and lives.. God's spirit is great than any power with which Satan might to seek to deceive us.
|This is the verse that led to my salvation many years ago.. read about it here and it summarises what Good Friday means - when the LORD gave up His life for us. His blood is the cleansing power for sin.. but salvation is gift! It is not ours till it is taken..|
On this day when we remember the greatest gift of all, when the Lord Jesus laid down His life on the cross, shed His blood for our sin, that we might by faith in Him have life for an eternity in heaven. Hallelujah!
How rich are we in Him! if we know Him as out our own Saviour!
