-LUKE 18:31-34


"Then he took unto him the twelve, and said unto them, Behold, we go up to Jerusalem, and all things that are written by the prophets concerning the Son of man shall be accomplished"

(Luke 18:31).

"On the cross crucified. In great sorrow He died. The giver of life was He. Yet my Lord was despised and rejected of men. This Jesus of Calvary. He was wounded for our transgressions. He was bruised for our iniquities. Surely, He bore our sorrows. And by His stripes we are healed." By these verses, the song writer captured succinctly the suffering of Christ for the entire mankind. The prophets had written about this and Christ Himself had explained it to His disciples. But, they understood none of these things. They were too bothered by the fact of His death to ever remember that He would also rise from the dead. Jesus came to do good. Indeed, "God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him". Even separated from the Cross by a few meters, He was still doing good. He restored sight to the blind, poor beggar who recognised Him as the Son of David. At His first coming, Christ was presented as a man of sorrows. The world rejected Him, nailed Him to the Cross. He died a most humiliating death. Today, many, in spite of the manifestation of God’s power through the name of Jesus, are still in doubt. "Believe the gospel and ye shall be saved, ye and your house. …Only believe, all things are possible to him that believeth."

Thought for the day: First, Christ came to die for sinners. Later, He will return to judge all sinners.
