KEY SCRIPTURE; Matthew 26:2. “Ye know that after two days is the feast of the passover, and the Son of man is betrayed to be crucified.”
The Lord had led an amazing life of blessing, healing and teaching the multitudes about the life of the kingdom of God. The multitudes had hailed him. Multitudes followed Him wherever He went. In the midst of all these popularities He informed His disciples about the close of His public ministry. Inspite of His popularity He will be betrayed arrested and shamefully crucified. He had accepted the will of God for His life, although it will be a shameful one. Jesus came into this life to do the will of the Father. All that he had done earlier was to lead to the ultimate of dying for mankind and resurrecting from the dead. His work will never had been fulfilled if He had not died and resurrected.
The Passover was a very significant event in the history of the Jewish people. He was to become the Passover lamb of God who would take away the sin of the world (John 1:29) This would be a sacrifice of His life that would bring salvation to all mankind. Romans 5:9. “Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him”. This was God’s will for humanity and He willingly accepted it. Galatians 1:4.”Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father:”
The Lord Jesus accepted God’s will for His life and died for all mankind. God’s will for you is to saved from sin and its consequences. Would you accept His will for allowing the Lord Jesus to die for you? Do not continue living a sinful life, it is not worth it.
If you have made Jesus Lord of your life, then, His will for you is that you might shine as light in an evil would. It is His will that you would be the salt in the earth. His death has made you light and salt. He said you are the light and salt of the would. Matt 5:13-16. Accept God’s will for your life today and bring glory to His name as the Lord Jesus brought glory to Him, by dying for all men.
THOUGHT: THE ONLY WAY TO HAVE A MEANINGFUL LIFE IS TO ACCEPT HIS WILL FOR YOUR LIFE.
1 Thessalonians 4:3. For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication:
2 Corinthians 6:2.”(For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)”
