Good Morning! Today’s devotional meditation is taken from Philippians 2:8d, which says,
“…Even the death of the cross.”
The final aspect of Christ’s descent was His submission to the most agonizing painful and shameful form of capital punishment that was ever thought up. This form of capital punishment was set aside for those who were enemies of the government, slaves, and the lowest of criminals. Just think, the King of Glory died a death that was for the vilest of society. An individual was considered to be cursed by God that hung on a cross. However, it was God’s perfect plan that was mandatory, to crucify His Son for you and I.
It is astounding to think that He was made a cures so that we could be redeemed from the curse of the Law. Galatians 3:13b says, “…Cursed is everyone that hangs on a tree.” It was God’s perfect, Divine intention that death on the cross for our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ was the only acceptable way of salvation for lost and doomed sinners to be redeemed from eternal ruin.
What a Mighty God we serve!
