God: allowed the cross to be…
Matthew 27:29 (KJV) “And when they had platted a crown of thorns, they put it upon his head, and a reed in his right hand: and they bowed the knee before him, and mocked him, saying, Hail, King of the Jews!”
Even though the cross have been in existence for so long and the story behind the cross have transcended time and space; there are those who doubt the efficacy. God did not make a mistake with the sacrifice and crucifixion of His Son, but in actuality delighted in offering Him for our sakes.
The thing God sought with mankind is reconciliation and that was only possible by the shedding of righteous blood. Jesus said, “a body has though prepared for me” (Hebrews 10:5) and with that body came the sacrifice.
Beloved we have so much to be thankful, yet still we walk about in blindness to our freedom. Jesus is and was the sacrifice so we now need to acknowledge that which He has done, welcome it and walk in our freedom.
The cross came for a purpose….
