“Freedom..”   Leave a comment

***

But God demonstrates His LOVE – towards us,
in that while we were still sinners,
Christ died for us.   Romans 5 : 8

Each year at the Feast of the Passover
the Roman Governor
would release a prisoner chosen by the people.
When Pilate offered them the option –
between Barabbas and Jesus
– they selected Barabbas!
He had been imprisoned on charges
of robbery and murder-
and was awaiting death by crucifixion.

So can you imagine that day –
when the door of his dark cell opened
and the soldiers entered?
He thought his day had come –
but instead the Romans released him.

Who was Barabbas?
He was the guilty one who deserved to die-
but was set free because –
ANOTHER died in his place.

Who was Jesus?
Who was this ONE who was wiling to die
for all the  guilty of all ages?
Who is this Jesus – who died for me?

Who was Barabbas?
In a sense he was – you and I.
All of us who are guilty before God.
JESUS DIED FOR ALL OF US!

I thank God for sending His dear Son -to die for my sins.

WISHING YOU A BLESSED SABBATH!
