Scripture of the Day - April 6, 2012

Good Friday 2012-04-06


John 10:9 I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved...
10 I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
11 I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.
15 I lay down my life for the sheep.

John 3:16 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.

Isaiah 53:7 He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth: he is brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he opened not his mouth.

We live in a dying world; A world that has turned its back on God, a world that doesn’t know God.

Isaiah 53:6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned everyone to his own way;and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.

Isa 59:2 But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear. (separated you from God)

God Almighty had done so much for His people. He had blessed them abundantly; He delivered them out of Egypt with miracle after miracle. He brought them into the Promised Land that was FLOWING with milk and honey. He went before them in battle after battle and gave them the victory.

Yet they still went whoring after other gods...gods that could do nothing for them. They still strayed from Him... the One who delivered them and blessed them.

Herein is the love of God toward His creation. He manifest HIMSELF in the flesh to take all our sins upon HIMSELF and pay the penalty for us. He became the scapegoat, He became sin for us, even though He knew no sin! 2 Cor. 5:21

And it’s not because we are all so wonderful and deserve it!

Romans 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.

It’s because He loved us that He gave us the opportunity to receive the gift of eternal life.

Philippians 2:8 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.

Found in fashion...
1 The habitus, as comprising everything in a person which strikes the senses, the figure, bearing, discourse, actions, manner of life etc.

God Almighty took on a human body. He experienced all that we do and understands our every weakness. He walked in our shoes!

Heb 4:15 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.


He’s been there! And He has the scars to prove it!!

It is a horrible, horrible thing that Jesus had to suffer the way He did. But He doesn’t want us to focus on that.

There were a great many women following Him, wailing and lamenting and Jesus stopped and said to them...

Luke 23:28 ... Daughters of Jerusalem, weep not for me, but weep for yourselves, and for your children.

Jesus knew that this wasn’t the end, He knew he would rise from the dead victorious over hell death and the grave!! And He knew that all who believe in Him and follow Him will have the same victory.

Victory: by B.E. Warren

Hallelujah, what a thought! Jesus full salvation brought victory, victory.
Let the powers of sin assail, Heaven’s grace can never fail, victory, victory.

I am trusting in the Lord, I am standing on His Word, victory, victory.
I have peace and joy within since my life is free from sin, Victory, victory.

Shout your freedom everywhere, His eternal peace declare, victory, victory.
Let us sing it here below in the face of every foe, victory, victory.

We will sing it on that shore when this fleeting life is o’er, victory, victory.
Sing it here ye ransomed throng, start the everlasting song, victory, victory.
