Week 12 Devo – WEDNESDAY

Out of the Grave

Jesus’ death and Resurrection have been a surprise to the two disciples. He met their discouragement and confusion with Scripture, revealing that it all points to Him. He could have shown Himself to them and removed their doubt and questioning, but instead He revealed the truth found in God’s Word about the kind of Messiah He would be. Jesus came to redeem the unrighteous through His sacrificial death.

They later recognized Him and came to know the truth by sight, but their hearts had been stirred to faith as Jesus taught them to rightly understand Scripture and the greater deliverance Jesus had come to secure.

Why do you think it was necessary for Jesus to suffer to atone for sins?
