DAILY DEVOTIONAL READING
He Paid The Ultimate Price
After going through the tortures, mockings and railings, He was eventually handed over to be crucified to pay the ultimate price for our sins. As he hung on the cross, there was total darkness over the land because the light of the world was on the cross. At this point, God, the Father turned His back on His only begotten Son because He was carrying the sins of the whole world. The veil of the temple tore into two signifying easy access by all people to God. He paid the price by reconciling man to God through His precious blood that He shed on the cross. There is no reason for anyone again to carry those sins that have been borne by Him. His body was removed and buried in a tomb. He was actually dead as confirmed by the centurion and Pilate, contrary to what some will want us to believe today.
Point of Emphasis: Jesus Christ died to pay the price we can never pay.
Prayer Point: Lord, help me to live my life in such a way that the sacrifice You made will not be in vain.
