SUNDAY, MARCH 17
Scripture: Matthew 27:43
In this passage as Jesus hung on the cross, the detractors around Him said, “He trusted in God; let Him deliver Him now if He will have Him; for He said, ‘I am the Son of God.’” On a few occasions during His ministry Jesus declared Himself the Son of God. Jesus in us is the pattern Son of God and shows us the pattern for being sons of God. We have to ask ourselves as we look to our Elder Brother, the pattern Son of God, our perfect example of Sonship, what was His purpose? What did He most often do? The answer is, whenever He encountered a work of the enemy, He relied upon His relationship with His Father and called upon Him to overturn it and God heard Him and answered. This included deliverance, healing, restoration and even creative miracles. This is the life that you and I are called to live. This is the realm where life doesn’t just happen, it is to unfold in front of us and we respond out of our relationship with God Who created us. Does that make for an exciting life and journey? That makes for a very exciting life because we never know what is going to happen next or where God is going to take us! All of our days were written in Him before the foundation of the earth.
