What a Savior!

By   •   April 5

white cross with crown of thorns

What was the power and influence that changed the cross from an instrument of bloody torture into the most glorious and beloved of all symbols? The Romans crucified thousands of people before and after Calvary. If Jesus had not risen from the dead, no right-minded person would have glorified anything so hideous and repulsive as a cross stained with the blood of Jesus. By the miracle of His rising from the grave, Jesus placed the seal of assurance upon the forgiveness of our sins.

A dead Christ could not have been our Savior. An unopened grave would never have opened heaven. By bursting the chains of the tomb, Jesus proved Himself to all ages the conqueror of sin. The sacrifice on Calvary had fulfilled its purpose; the ransom price paid for your sins and mine had been accepted by God. Hallelujah, what a Savior!

Prayer for the day

Each time I see the empty cross, let me be reminded of Your suffering and Your victory, Lord Jesus.

    Oh, what a Saviour! Demands my soul, my life, my ALL. God is accustomed to move in chaos. He formed this world out of chaos. God accepted the ransom. What the AK-47 could not accomplish, the CROSS did a long time ago. And the sacrifice on Calvary has fulfiled its purpose. Help us, Lord and open the eyes of our understanding to the Father’s initiative in seeking us to Worship HIM in Spirit and in Truth. Amen.
