What I read today;
Exodus 15; 1 Kings 13-14; Psalm 59; Isaiah 59; John 18; 2 Timothy 1-2
Jesus knew why he was on this earth. He understood that his job was to provide a way for sinful mankind to be in the presence of a Holy God. Jesus was here to cleanse all mankind from Sin and Death. He still holds out that offer today to all of humanity. But people still don’t understand. The world still misses the point.
Just like Pilate did;
John 18 vs. 37-38, “Then Pilate said to him, “So you are a king?” Jesus answered, “You say that I am a king. For this purpose, I was born, and for this purpose, I have come into the world—to bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth listens to my voice.” 38 Pilate said to him, “What is truth?” ESV
Nothing has really changed. We still miss the point of Jesus coming to the earth. We still fail to understand that it was our sinful actions that required a sacrifice for our sins. We still miss the point that it was Jesus love and mercy that saves us.
We still wonder, “What is the truth?”
