Jesus is sinless. He has always been and will always be perfect, blameless - sinless. And yet the most evil act ever carried out was committed against Him. Satan convinced sinful men that Jesus had to be stopped and put to death. If this could happen to the most innocent man who ever lived, how can we possibly believe that we can skate through life unscathed? We will all have hard times, times where we are treated unfairly, times where we are persecuted for any number or things. Jesus knows how it feels. He has been there.
He has a plan to bring glory from our trials.
1. Do you believe Jesus can bring glory from tragedy?
2. Do you believe He did that on the cross?
Challenge: Jesus suffered the most deplorable treatment on the cross because of His great love for us. His supernatural resurrection is the reason for great joy and celebration. Thank Him today for His gift and ask for the strength to follow Him no matter the cost.
