Today’s reading: Isaiah ch. 37

In whom (Jesus Christ) we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace; Wherein he hath abounded toward us in all wisdom and prudence;
Ephesians 1:7-8

Judge and Saviour
A judge in America had to decide a case for which the law imposed a fine. The accused, who had been found guilty, had been a friend of the judge in his youth. So he hoped to get off with the most lenient punishment that the law prescribed. Far from it! The judge imposed the severest punishment which went way beyond the means of the one sentenced. Many who attended the trial praised the judge’s impartiality, although some voiced opinion that he might have been more understanding.
How astonished they were all when the judge suddenly left his seat and handed over the full amount of the fine for the guilty party. He had decided and announced the just punishment, but he paid it himself.
The sentence had been pronounced and the fine paid. No-one could raise any objection. Justice had been done and the accused was now justified. How? Not through anything done on his own part, but through sheer grace. A substitute had submitted to the sentence and paid what the law had demanded.
This is exactly how God acts. He cannot overlook sin, but must judge it. Yet whoever puts his faith in the Son of God can rest assured that the punishment for his sins was carried out on Christ, who, out of inconceivable love, settled the debt of all the guilt incurred.

by Pastor E.A Adeboye


Yesterday we learnt it is not right for us to get angry with God or to take offence against Him, even if we experience the deferment of our hopes. The example of John the Baptist who earlier acknowledged Jesus as the Messiah, but later doubted Him because of his painful experience of incarceration is a warning...More
