There is one great central truth to be kept ever before our minds in the searching of the bible – Christâ€˜s crucifixion. Every other truth is invested with influence and power corresponding to its relation to this theme. The soul which has been overcome by sin can be endowed with life only through the work wrought out upon the cross by the Author of our salvation – Jesus Christ the son of God.
When Christ bowed His head and died on the cross, He bore the pillars of Satanâ€™s kingdom with Him to the earth. He vanquished Satan. Amen.
Christ submitted to crucifixion, although the heavenly host could have instantly delivered Him. The angels suffered with Christ. God Himself was crucified with Christ; for Christ is one with the Father.
Those who reject Christ, those who will not have him direct them, choose to place themselves under the rule of Satan, to do his work as his follower. Yet for them Christ yielded up His life on Calvary.
He who died for the sins of the world remained in the tomb for an allotted time. He was in that stony prison house as a prisoner of divine justice. He was responsible to the Judge of the universe. He was bearing the sins of the world, and His Father only could release Him.
He identified Himself with our interests, bared His breast for the stroke of death, took manâ€™s guilt and its penalty, and offered in manâ€™s behalf a complete sacrifice to God. By virtue of this atonement, He has power to offer to man perfect righteousness and full salvation. Therefore, whosoever shall believe on Jesus as a personal Saviour shall not perish, but have everlasting life. Amen.
The price of manâ€™s redemption has been paid by Jesus, and all he has and is should be sprinkled with the blood of the lamb, dedicated to God; for it all belongs to Jesus the one true and only living saviour.
But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.Romans 5:8.
Almighty Father, Creator of the universe, I approach Your Heavenly Gates with a grateful heart. I bless Your Holy Name and submit the honor and praise that is due unto You.
Beautiful Lord, I was created in your image, fearfully and wonderfully made to be the light in this dark world.
Father please guide me in a plain path of righteousness according to Your will and glory. You are the Omnipotent Potter and I am the clay.
Shape me, mold me, use me and fill me each and everyday to become more like Christ.
