15/5 Challenge Day 23

“And an inscription also was written over Him in letters of Greek, Latin, and Hebrew: THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS.” LUKE 23:38 (NKJV)

The notice above the cross, “This is the King of the Jews,” was meant to be a mockery of Jesus—to poke fun at His claims. To the believer, it prompts feelings of utter gratitude and reverence: our Savior, on a cross, dying for the sins of the world. There is no mockery in us as we ponder and surrender our hearts to Jesus for His great, undeserved love toward us! What a sweet gift it is that Jesus turned the tables. Even the words that were meant to harm Him, placed there by others, were words that He chose to put in His love letters (the Bible) to us believers. God can use all things for His glory! Jesus is King! Let your hearts be encouraged by that today. There is nothing in your life that God cannot turn around and use for His glory!

  1. Yes! God can use all things for His glory!! As I was reading the account today of Jesus’ crucifixion, I was struck that He even brought the Father glory by saving one of the thieves from the pit of hell right before He died! Oh, yes! Our Jesus is so good, that He even continues to accomplish His Father’s purposes for Him on this earth right up to the very last moment by bringing another sheep into the fold. Oh, the GREAT love of our Jesus!
