“But You, O LORD, do not be far from Me; O My Strength, hasten to help Me! Deliver Me from the sword, My precious life from the power of the dog. Save Me from the lion’s mouth and from the horns of the wild oxen! You have answered Me.”

I took a course in criminology. I went to Rayford Prison in Florida where people are electrocuted. I went into the room where the electric chair is and sat down. I put my hands on the arms where the electrodes are and my legs where they would be strapped down. And I thought, what a terrible thing it must be to be electrocuted or to be put to death by injection.
But there is no execution like crucifixion. In six hours, the eternities were compressed. In six hours, the sins of the world were distilled, and Jesus, the Son of God, died at the holy hands of God, the hateful hands of man, and the hellish hands of Satan. Why? Because He loves us.
Take time today to praise God for sending Jesus to die in your place in an unimaginable way.
