With the greatest holiday approaching, I hope to get you thinking about the greatest event that ever occurred. It is the Gospel Message, the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. The prophet Isaiah, 600 years before it ever happened, told us that He would be “despised and rejected by men”. This is the Son of God, the Creator, and the created are going to reject Him! Wow! And sure enough, 600 years later we read in the Gospel of Matthew, “And plotted together in order to arrest Jesus by stealth and kill Him.” (Matthew 26:4) Imagine being one of the crowd, one of the conspirators to plot and desire the murder of Jesus, The Son of God!
But your sin and my sin is why He came and “laid down” His life! (2 Corinthians 5:21) He loves you so much that He took the abuse of humanity, for your salvation!
May nothing we do ever take away from the glory, praise, and adoration He deserves!
