Never forget, Jesus laid down His life freely for you.
Pray The Word and Prepare for The Word
John 19: 36 These things happened in fulfillment of the Scriptures that say, "Not one of his bones will be broken," 37 and "They will look on the one they pierced."
Read -John 19:31–37
The soldiers are told to hasten the death’s of those hanging on crosses but Jesus is already gone. Why? He had ‘given up His Spirit’ so that we could be forgiven. Powerful!
Lord, I will look upon that horrific cross and live with gratitude.
Read John 10:17-18 to remember that Jesus said He would lay down His life in this way.
Isaiah 53 prophetically promised that Jesus would be pierced for our transgressions. The crown of thorns had pierced His head and now this spear had pierced His side. When it did, His blood was shed for you and for me that we would no longer be slaves to sin (Marred) but that we could become righteous through faith and repentance (Mended). Are you Mended by Christ?
