It wasn’t a lack of power that kept Jesus on the Cross, it was the power of love that kept Him there.
Pray The Word and Prepare for The Word
Matthew 27:40 Well then, if you are the Son of God, save yourself and come down from the cross!"
Read - Matthew 27:39–43; Mark 15:29–32; Luke 23:35–38
We often miss what God is doing. Like the mockers in today’s Bible text, we rarely get the ‘big picture’ when we are looking at God’s mysterious ways. Let’s make sure and leave room in our worldview for God to do the unexpected.
Lord, I will wait on You to show Your own divine plan.
Read John 2:19 to see the encounter the scoffers are quoting…
In order for us to be Mended by Christ, He had to finish the job. His 3 year ministry to the region was concluded but He had to stay on that cross and fully lay down His life to become to sacrificial Lamb of God that would take away the Marring Sin of the World. Thanks be to God that He did!
