FDD2018: FIFTY DAYS OF DESPERATION 2018 begins today as we turn our hearts to God on Easter Morning. What greater morning to begin centering on Repentance than the day that our Lord rose from the dead for our justification? Rom 4:25 forms the background of today’s prayer. “He who was delivered over because of our transgressions, and was raised because of our justification.” (Romans 4:25, NASB95) Jesus was delivered for our transgressions! Isaiah 53 displays it as well. the Lord Jesus died as a substitution for us, at the Father’s will. “Sin Didn’t Kill Jesus—God Did” –John MacArthur Though innocent, Jesus bore the GUILT of others and suffered FOR sin, but it was GOD the Father who sent his Son to the Cross, and who orchestrated his sacrifice. But this morning some 2000 years ago, Jesus was raised from the dead with a proclamation that everyone who believes in him is innocent! Praise God today for his sacrifice. Praise God today for the resurrection. Praise God for the promise of justification.
