THE LORD WHO PAID THE PRICE
Let us always think of our Lord and God as the one who undertook the horror of death on a cross to pay the price for the salvation of we who were yet sinners.
The great God of heaven, surrendered His vast power and estate to give His life unto death for the benefit of people who were scoffing at him and who cried out for His crucifixion.
This is the excellency of Jesus. He faced the reality of surrendering Himself to the Roman military machine where He would be brutally executed like a criminal. The bible says that He set His face as flint and would not stray from the path He set himself on even though at any time, He had the power to call the whole thing off.
He saw it through to the point where He gave up His Spirit and died which resulted in the salvation of the children of Israel who believed and then the salvation of all the rest of us around the world who were enabled to believe that the Jewish Messiah was the salvation for the rest of us as well.
Praise our Lord who paid the price.
