Crucified

Luke 23.26-43

Amazing grace, how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me. I once was lost, but now I’m found. Was blind, but now I see. The cross shows the love of God in a way that nothing else in all of creation could. Jesus endures the worst physical torments our twisted minds could conceive… And yet He does it willingly for us, dying so that we might live. As The Jesus Storybook Bible says, “It wasn’t the nails that kept Jesus there. It was love.” What a Savior!

There are a number of different reactions to Jesus…the women weep. The rulers, the soldiers and one of the criminals mocks. The other criminal believes. How will you respond to Jesus? Is He a “would-be” King, or is He the King of kings? Is He your King? And if He is your King, would that be obvious to those who are closest to you? Are you proclaiming Him as King through your actions and your words like the criminal did with his buddy on the cross?

Until next time…stay salty.
