He Took My Curse 

Today’s verse says these words “They crucified him”! These few words describe one of the most awesome events in history: the crucifixion of the Son of God. According to historians, crucifixion was one of the most brutal, degrading, and humiliating ways to be put to death. It was Rome’s favourite method, intended for the worst criminals.

God’s sinless Son was crucified between two criminals. It’s far beyond our human comprehension to understand how God the Father allowed his Son to be crucified, for death on a cross was cursed by God himself in the book of Deuteronomy. But this was God’s way of saying to each of us, “The curse you deserve is placed on my Son”.

Jesus was crucified at “the place called the Skull,” also known as Calvary, or Golgotha in Aramaic, a place of many executions, to let us know that his cross stood amid human suffering and misery. Through the cross of Christ, God himself entered our broken lives in this world.

Today, for those who wonder whether God cares about our suffering, here is God’s answer. Look at the cross and reflect on the words “they crucified him there”. Be assured that God cares more than we will ever know. He cared enough to let his Son be crucified, taking our place, our curse, and our sin.

“When they came to the place called the Skull, they crucified him there . . .” (Luke 23:33).

Let’s Pray

Yahweh, your love is so amazing and so divine it demands my soul, my life and my all. Father thank you for freeing me from the curse of sin through my Lord and saviour Yahshua. Amen.
