Matthew 27:35-36 And they crucified him, and parted his garments, casting lots: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, They parted my garments among them, and upon my vesture did they cast lots (36) And sitting down they watched him there;


They were watching as the Lamb of God, without spot or blemish was being sacrificed for our sins. Every sacrifice in the Old Testament was pointing to this specific event where the perfect would become the sacrifice for the imperfect, the Holy would take the punishment for the unholy. It was where God would pay the penalty for the sins of man and settle man's sin debt once for all who would believe and accept His Son.

The Son of God was demonstrating His love for mankind in the greatest way possible, by dying in man's place.

My sin debt and the sin debt of mankind was being satisfied by the sacrifice that Jesus made.

They were watching the work of Redemption in the process.

Our prayers are that this devotional ministry will be an outreach to bring people into a closer relationship with Jesus. I do appreciate you taking the time to read these devotionals and please keep us in your prayers.
