Then Pilate therefore took Jesus, and scourged him. John 19:1. This scripture is only 8 words long, but it holds a painful story. Crucifixion was a torturous death, but prior to Jesus being nailed to a cross to atone for your sins (and mine), He suffered agonizing pain by being…

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16 KJV
In reading the Bible through each year, I find the Book of Leviticus one of the hardest to read. Here God sets forth all the different sacrifices that are to be offered. It must have been hard to keep track of what was to be brought for each specific purpose.
It surely makes me thankful that Jesus paid the supreme sacrifice on Calvary for all the sins of the world. All we have to do is accept what He has done for us, and His blood cleanses us from all sins, and forgives us completely, not just for another year, but for eternity. The perfect Lamb of God shed His blood once and for all.
Prayer: Thank you, Jesus, for your sacrifice on Calvary, that paid the sin debt, and I am forgiven.

“And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the LORD: for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the LORD: for I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.” (Jeremiah 31:34 in the King James Version)

Although I remember my sins well, God has cast my sins into the sea of forgetfulness and He no longer holds me responsible for what He has forgiven. I am free! I must leave my past behind. I must not wrestle with what God has already forgotten.

Prayer: Savior, Your death paid for the wrong I have done and today You are filling the clean pages of my life with a new future designed to bring You glory! Thank you, Jesus!
