Today is Tuesday, October 17, 2017. Hi, my name is Adam Burton, and you are listening to the daily devo. A short devotional designed to help you apply God’s Word to your life. The content comes from the Gospel Project.
Take a few moments and read: Matthew 27:15-51.
The narrative of the events leading up to and including the crucifixion certainly does not do justice to the full horror on display. Black print on a Bible’s pages can never fully express the scarlet blood flowing from a wounded back and pierced brow. A few paragraphs read in a matter of seconds cannot adequately convey the dread and shock of hours of torture Jesus experienced for the guilty. As Jesus marched to Golgotha, He did so not only in Barabbas’ place, but also for all who would believe. He was crucified and condemned so that we might be ransomed and redeemed. He became sin so that we might become the righteous of God (2 Cor. 5:21).
Think about this: How does knowing the extent of Jesus’ sacrifice increase your love for Him? How does it affect you to know Jesus bore the punishment our sin’s deserve?
