Jesus Died for All

Many of us know these verses, but it was the commentary. Actually it was the last question in the commentary that caught my attention. We must never grow so comfortable with what we think is true. We need to always keep ourselves in check. That was what this did fir me this morning. Caused me to really think about it.

John 13:6-11

Then cometh he to Simon Peter: and Peter saith unto him, Lord, dost thou wash my feet? Jesus answered and said unto him, What I do thou knowest not now; but thou shalt know hereafter. Peter saith unto him, Thou shalt never wash my feet. Jesus answered him, If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me. Simon Peter saith unto him, Lord, not my feet only, but also my hands and my head. Jesus saith to him, He that is washed needeth not save to wash his feet, but is clean every whit: and ye are clean, but not all. For he knew who should betray him; therefore said he, Ye are not all clean.

Commentary

Jesus’ washing of the disciples’ feet goes fine until He reaches Peter. Only after Jesus tells Peter that it was a requirement of being with Christ does he change his mind. This is a foreshadowing of what Christ was about to do on the cross, in more ways than one. Interesting that Peter initially denies Christ here, and then denies Christ again 3 times later as Jesus predicted. It is also interesting that Jesus washes Judas’ feet, knowing that he would betray Him. Consider those examples today. Are you able to receive what Jesus did for you?

Pain On the Outside but Renewal On the Inside

2 Corinthians 4:13-18

We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak; Knowing that he which raised up the Lord Jesus shall raise up us also by Jesus, and shall present us with you. For all things are for your sakes, that the abundant grace might through the thanksgiving of many redound to the glory of God. For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day. For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.

Commentary

Our eternal perspective as believers is vital to our witness for Christ throughout our lives. We must remember verse 17 during our “light and momentary troubles”. This helps us not lose heart, but grow in faith and continue in worship to a God who is, and always will be…worthy.

Jesus Already Knows, so Why Cry Out?

Mark 5:30-34

And Jesus, immediately knowing in himself that virtue had gone out of him, turned him about in the press, and said, Who touched my clothes? And his disciples said unto him, Thou seest the multitude thronging thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me? And he looked round about to see her that had done this thing. But the woman fearing and trembling, knowing what was done in her, came and fell down before him, and told him all the truth. And he said unto her, Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace, and be whole of thy plague.

Commentary

In a crowd full of people who are, “following and pressing in around Him”, Jesus asks the question (vs. 30) and begins looking for the woman who touched His clothes. Jesus is not confused about who touched His clothes…He already knows. Why then does He ask the question? In a beautifully crafted divine setup, Jesus orchestrates a public confession from this woman about what has happened to her. God’s plan collides with this woman’s great faith and heals her, while also providing a teaching moment and great encouragement to the disciples and the crowd.

I will add… Even in the time we live in , when we cry out to Jesus with our afflictions and sorrows and we are healed or comforted or any number of things, it becomes yet another testimony for glorifying Jesus Christ our King!

Breaking the Law

Galatians 2:21

I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.

Commentary

If you could gain righteousness through the law, everything in the Old Testament would have been enough. The rules and regulations that were given to Moses, the Ten Commandments, and the Levitical Priesthood atoning for sins would have been enough. However, the law could not save us; it could not make us righteous. Christ’s road to the cross is jam-packed full of purpose and necessity. He knew that we needed Him in order to be right with God; to be saved by grace through faith alone in Christ alone. Jesus is everything! Believe.

Reaching for the Arms of Our Father

Acts 17:26-28

And hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation; That they should seek the Lord, if haply they might feel after him, and find him, though he be not far from every one of us: For in him we live, and move, and have our being; as certain also of your own poets have said, For we are also his offspring.

Commentary

Take an extra moment today and let this sink into your heart. Noah was the man that all nations were made from, a man who found favor in the eyes of God. This verse indicates that God has setup history as a divine outworking of a plan filled with mercy, grace, and opportunity for us to seek Him as our loving Father. My heart leaps each time my children reach for me, something I cannot express in words. God set everything up so that we would have every opportunity to reach for him, just like a little child would reach for a parent. Reach and cry out “Abba!” Daddy!
