Jesus ‘Took the Fall’ for You Июнь 1, 2010

Posted by Lee Goodall in Today's Devotional.

‘…Christ also suffered…the just for the unjust…’ 1 Peter 3:18

At the cross we see two things: 1) How God feels about sin. God, Who is holy, finds our sin in all its forms to be totally offensive and punishable by death. ‘Thus says the Lord to this people: ‘»…they have loved to wander; they have not restrained their feet. Therefore the Lord does not accept them; He will…punish their sins’ (Jeremiah 14:10 NKJV). The subject of repentance isn’t too palatable in a generation that rationalizes sin. But a good doctor will tell you how sick you are in order to get you to take the medicine that will save you. 2) How God feels about sinners. ‘For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life’ (John 3:16 NKJV). According to the Chicago Tribune, on June 22, 1997, parachute instructor Michael Costello, forty-two, of Mt. Dora, Florida, jumped out of an airplane at 12,000 feet altitude with a novice skydiver named Gareth Griffith, aged twenty-one. The novice would soon discover just how good his instructor was. For when the novice pulled the ripcord his chute failed. Plummeting toward the ground he faced certain death. But then the instructor did an amazing thing. Just before hitting the ground, the instructor rolled over so that he would hit the ground first and the novice would land on top of him. The instructor was killed instantly. The novice fractured his spine in the fall, but he was not paralysed. At the cross Jesus ‘took the fall’ for you. Today, He asks you to live for Him. Will you?
