Friday 8/9 ~ Taking the death penalty for someone else

The scripture for today, August 9 (8/9), is 2nd Corinthians 8:9 as found in the New Testament of the Bible:

0-BK 7-ShadowOfDeath-Cover-new-Thumbnail“For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sakes, he became poor so that you through his poverty might become rich.”

Such love!

Jesus gave up streets of gold for streets full of trash. Gave up a heavenly mansion for a barn. Gave up the ability to be everywhere at once, to being confined to a body. Gave up eternal bliss for thirty-three years of pain and struggle. Gave up adoring angels for crowds that hated him. And finally, he gave up sinlessness to take the blame for your sins and allow himself to take the soul and body death penalty for your sins.

What more can be said about God who materialized for you and snatched you out of Satan’s jaws? Unless perhaps it is ‘What have you given up for him lately?’.

 

0-BK 7-ShadowOfDeath-Cover-new-ThumbnailSHADOW OF DEATH is a novel about the last day of Jesus’ life including two slow-motion chapters about his six hours on the cross and ending with the hopelessness felt by his shattered followers.  This THEY MET JESUS series is a commentary in narrative form.  To BUY NOW, click a book cover or paste this:  https://amzn.to/2OXZjd8
