“Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And they parted his raiment, and cast lots.”
Luke 23:34 KJV
Dottie Rambo wrote a beautiful inspiring hymn about our precious Saviour “If That Isn’t Love”. “He left the Splendor of Heaven Knowing His Destiny Was the lonely Hill of Golgotha There to lay down His life for me”. Yes, He knew He was going to be beaten beyond recognition and crucified on the cross.
What kind of love is this that Jesus would walk that long lonely road to
Calvary and allow them to crucify Him on the cross for
our sins? It is a compassionate and
unconditional love for you and for me that kept Him on the cross. All the nails in the world couldn’t have held
Him if He had chosen to come down.
Do you understand yet how much Jesus loves you? I write about Jesus loving you many times in my devotions and the reason why is because knowing that Jesus loves us will help us go through the crises and dark valleys in our life. Allow it to go from head knowledge to heart knowledge that He loves you.
