Today’s Bible reading is Luke chapter 23
(Read the entire New Testament in 2014 by reading only one chapter each day)
At the top of Calvary’s Mountain there were three crosses. Three men were sentenced to die by crucifixion. One man was dying in sin. Another was dying to sin. But Jesus was dying for sin. Jesus was innocent of sin. He was the Just dying for the unjust. The dying thief could find no fault in Him. Pilate found no fault in Him. The Roman centurion who was converted at the cross could find no fault in Jesus, but instead he said, “Certainly this was a righteous man.” Do you find any fault in Jesus? His very nature demands one of two responses. Either you will love Him and follow Him, or you will reject Him and by your actions hate Him. No one is neutral when it comes to Jesus Christ. Where do you stand today?
Prayer: “Dear Father, You are not leading people to heaven backwards. Today, may we make up our minds and set our faces to following Jesus Christ.”
