Title: Jesus suffers in our stead
Bible verse: Matthew 17: 22
Now while they were staying in Galilee, Jesus said to them, “The Son of Man is about to be betrayed into the hands of men.”
Message: Jesus suffers for our sins.
It is not merely a handful of specific individuals who are to blame for the crucifixion of Jesus. All human beings share in the blame for this. Let us draw the appropriate conclusions from this awareness.
- Let us not seek to blame others for our own failures and sins.
- Let us acknowledge that we can never earn or deserve the leniency and grace of God.
- Our sins are also to blame for Jesus’ pain. For this reason, let us continue to fight against sin.
