“ And when Jesus had cried out with a loud voice, He said, “Father, into Your hands I commit My spirit.’” Having said this, He breathed His last.” Luke 23:46
Early one afternoon, before the sun was setting, the King of Glory was being mutilated. His visage was marred, His body was pierced, His clothing was torn, His blood was being shed. It was an awful sight, the men beat Him with all their might.
But, He took everything without putting up a fight. Stop and think for a moment of His plight.
He did it for you, He did it for me.
All Jerusalem was involved as the King of Glory was taken to Calvary.
Then in the thickening silence, came the pounding of the hammer, as the nails were driven into the flesh of the Master.
He cried out in pain, as nail after nail, found its way into His flesh as he grimaced and wailed.
“Father forgive them, for they know not what they do!” were the words that He uttered. He was talking about me. He was talking about you.
His blood sets us free to be who we were born to be, to live free from sin and have access to the King.
What Adam sold in the Garden was redeemed through Calvary.
Now we have a new Eden and we walk in total victory.
His blood gives us the power to overcome the enemy, to walk in dominion and enforce Jesus’ authority.
What does Calvary mean to you?
What does Calvary mean to me?
Calvary spells our victory, our dominion, our authority and it secured our eternity.
Thank you Jesus for dying, for leaving heaven and providing a way for me to be a king and priest so that I could rule and reign with you forever. Thank you, Jesus!
