LMI's 'A word for your week' devotional taken from Galatians 3:13b

T - TREE ‘Cursed is everyone who is hanged on a tree’ Galatians 3:13b 

John chapter 19 v 17 – 18 ‘and he went out, bearing his own cross, to The Place of a Skull, which in Aramaic is called Golgotha. There they crucified him, and with him two others, one on either side, and Jesus between them’ 

‘Three crosses standing side by side, Of broken law a sign, Two for their own transgressions died, The middle one for mine, The middle One the Son of God, Shedding His blood for me, And trusting in that precious blood. I’m safe eternally.’ (Anon) 

The Saviour’s cross, He died for the sins of the world 

The scoffer’s cross, he deserved to die but scorned the Saviour 

The sinner’s cross, he died for his sins but received the Saviour’s forgiveness and assurance of eternal life at Calvary. 

On Good Friday we focus on the suffering of Christ as He died on the cross. 1 Corinthians 1:18 ‘For the word of the cross is folly to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.’ The Lord Jesus Christ became a curse for us by bearing our sins on the tree in order that the curse of sin could be removed from us. How great is that love! 

When He cried ‘It is finished’, He had fully paid the price for our salvation. 

Oh to see the dawn, Of the darkest day 

Christ on the road to Calvary, Tried by sinful men 

Torn and beaten, then Nailed to a cross of wood 

This, the power of the cross, Christ became sin for us 

Took the blame, bore the wrath, We stand forgiven at the cross 

Oh, to see the pain, Written on Your face 

Bearing the awesome weight of sin 

Ev’ry bitter thought, Ev’ry evil deed 

Crowning your bloodstained brow 

Now the daylight flees, Now the ground beneath 

Quakes as its Maker bows His head, Curtain torn in two 

Dead are raised to life ‘Finished!’ the vict’ry cry 

Oh, to see my name, Written in the wounds 

For through the suffering I am free 

Death is crushed to death, Life is mine to live 

Won through your selfless love.
