The Greatest Work of Christ

Jesus worked all His life. But the greatest work that Jesus did was not in the carpenter’s shop, nor even at the marriage feast of Cana where He turned the water into wine. The greatest work that Jesus did was not when He made the blind to see, the deaf to hear, the dumb to speak, nor even the dead to rise. The greatest work that Jesus did was not when He taught as One having authority, or when He scathingly denounced the Pharisees for their hypocrisy. The greatest work that Jesus did was not in the great ethical program He presented to mankind—that program which has become the foundation for Western culture. What, then, was His greatest work? His greatest work was achieved in those three dark hours on Calvary. Christ’s greatest work was His dying for us.

Prayer for the day

The battles of life must be faced, but I know they will not be faced without You, my heavenly Father.

    I have recently been having some issues with my faith! I need to hear the word so much. I have more excuses not to get up and go to church it’s pathetic! I’ve grown up as a strong christian , thanks to my momma, but why is it I just don’t go to church for even just 1 hr a week? I surely have no problem getting out to work or doc appts and all, so someone tell me why do I have such difficulty going to get my heart filled with the Holy Spirit….something that is so much greater than all of those things! Anyways thanks for sharing the word with me! I need it now more than ever!

      Hi Lisa,

      How about starting by asking a friend or family member to go with you and then make plans to go together? If we make ourselves accountable to someone, we’re more like to follow through with a commitment. Here is Billy Graham’s answer:

    Yes indeed , Jesus greatest work by far was accomplished on the cross at Calvary. Once completed all those who believe and acknowledge this great truth that he truly is the Holy Son of God, will have eternal life. Thank you Lord for your perfect plan of redemption.

    Thank you for this devotion. Christ took the sin for us, the sacrificial Lamb, rose from the dead and was declared to be the Son of God, the Messiah, overcoming death and then ascending on high. I am grateful to know Jesus Christ as my Saviour and to study and prayer daily and fellowship with other believers to obtain the promises and share the Good News with others!
