They Crucified Him…

Matthew 27:35  And they crucified him, and parted his garments, casting lots: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, They parted my garments among them, and upon my vesture did they cast lots.


Religion does not like to acknowledge the scriptures about the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. However, that does not hide the truth that to have relationship with God the crucifixion must be recognized.  Jesus who committed no sin was crucified for our sins.  He died that you and I might be able to go to God and receive forgiveness for our sins. The Bible declares that we have all sinned and come short of the glory of God.  That is the problem with our world; we do not want to admit that we have sinned.  We want to live our lives ignoring the teachings of God.  We do not even know the depths of our own depravity.

Jeremiah 17:9 The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?

We are amazed at the cruelty of our society and those of other cultures but it is only the revelation of the inner hearts of men and women without God.  The only thing that will change our world is relationship with Him as he forgives our sins and remakes our hearts with His love replacing our selfishness and depravity.  It may not be politically correct to say today, but mankind is not basically good in his heart. He has all the symptoms of our nation and our world.  There is hate, racism, vulgarity and cruelty.  Government laws, organizations, rhetoric, and earthy wisdom will never change the pit into which we have fallen.  It is only the cross and its truth that can save us.  You can deny it but sacrifice of Jesus Christ and relationship with Him is our only deliverance.  Repent of your sin and allow Him to become your personal saviour. Then we will have the world that we want!

Keep Looking Up,
