A Prayer Prompted by Matthew 27

Heavenly Father,

Thank you that out of love for us you sent your Son, who willingly died in our place. Thank you for allowing him to take the punishment that our sin deserved.

We thank you for having him endure the false accusations from his enemies, the abandonment of his friends and the pain and suffering that were naturally a part of the cross.

We also thank you for placing upon Jesus the unendurable grief caused by our sin. The guilt and the shame built up over the history of the human race was placed on his shoulders.

This tragic death is not a defeat, but the most wonderful victory ever won. And he did it because he loved us.

Thank you in Christ’s name,

Amen.

Leviticus: Worship and Walk

In Leviticus, God emphasizes his perfect holiness, but shows his less-than-perfect people how they may still approach him.

God is going to reveal his strength – his strong arm – in an unbelievable way.  What does the powerful arm of God look like? It looks like Jesus – humiliated, rejected and beaten, and then dying on a cross.

Palmer St. Podcast: Radical Submission

In this passage we will hear Peter’s instructions regarding the Christian attitude toward authority – and it is extremely instructive to us. Writing from Rome, and living under the tyranny of a maniac who would later literally crucify him, he tells us to submit.

Palmer St. Podcast: A Lesson on Prayer

It’s interesting. Jesus never taught His disciples how to preach or teach the Bible. Nor does it seem they ever asked Him. But they frequently observed Him praying – the God-Man communing with His Father. On at least one occasion they were motivated to ask Him for a lesson on the topic – so He gave them one. Paul now gives Timothy a brief lesson here.
