Jesus was sentenced to die

Daily Thought

Your Word for 22 July 2024

Genesis 48:21
Then he said to Joseph, ‘Look, I am about to die, but God will be with you and bring you back to the land of your fathers.’

CRUCIFY HIM, CRUCIFY HIM!  This was the cry of the people.

Luke 23:20-21 Pilate argued with them, for he wanted to release Jesus. 21But they shouted, “Crucify him! Crucify him!”

Today people still shout these words in their hearts. Crucifixion was their idea.  This was humanities cry. Still today people reject Him.  Don’t reject Jesus today! Invite Him into your hearts
Pilate sentenced Jesus to die.  He did what the people wanted.

Luke 23:24 So Pilate sentenced Jesus to die as they demanded.

They released a criminal (Barnabas) and sentenced Jesus to death. Jesus was the innocent one.  The innocent had to pay the price for the guilty.  Jesus was willing to do this.  For all the generations.   It was for you and me.
Worthy is the Lamb
