Today's Verse : Galatians 3:13


March 13, 2012

Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse
for us, for it is written: "Cursed is everyone who is hung on a
-- Galatians 3:13

Cursed! Not just in the sense that he was mocked and his
detractors cursed at him, but in the sense that he received the
curse of death because of our sin. He did what was hideous and
scandalous; he died on a Cross -- hung to a tree in front of a
jeering mob, executed like sub-human scum. But the beauty of his
shame and disgrace is that God made it our redemption. Jesus'
ridicule and curse bought us freedom from the curse of our own
sins. Praise God! Praise Jesus!

Almighty Father, I can't even pretend to fathom your ways and
why you would require of yourself such a horrific sacrifice to
redeem me. Precious Savior, I can't imagine what it was like to
hang before a mob carrying the sin of the whole world. All I can do
is ask the Holy Spirit to make my thoughts and words convey the
gratitude of my heart as he intercedes for me now. Thank you!
Praise you! May my life truly honor you! In the mighty name of
Jesus, I praise. Amen.
