Week 4 Devo – WEDNESDAY

Who is Christ? The Sacrifice

Jesus had listened to the crowd as they yelled and cursed at Him. He had made it past the first round of beatings and ridicule only to find Himself in the middle of more. And as He hung there between two criminals, He responded in an unimaginable way.

What did Jesus ask of God?

Although He had been beaten, abused, spit upon, ridiculed and cursed, Jesus did the unthinkable: He asked that God forgive His accusers. He was not thinking about His situation but was more concerned with the forgiveness of those He was dying for.

Why do you think Jesus was thinking of us instead of Himself?
