BIBLE MEDITATION: ?For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.? John 3:16
DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT: A boy was having difficulty living the Christian life. He went to his pastor who told him to go see a painting. The caretaker at the gallery took him to a large room where the painting adorned an entire wall. The young man was repulsed at what he saw. It was a painting of Christ on the cross but the perspective from which the artist painted it was off balance. It looked grotesque. The caretaker said, ?Son, you need to get closer.? The young man came closer. ?Son, you need to get lower.? The young man got lower. ?No, closer and lower.? Before the young man knew what was happening, he was kneeling at the foot of the cross and when he looked up, he understood the entire painting. Until you are willing to take your place at the foot of the cross, the Christian life will never make sense to you, too.
ACTION POINT: Spend some time meditating on what Jesus experienced as He suffered the anguish, accusations, scourging, mocking, and actual crucifixion to make atonement for your sin.
