7-14-2017 Only One Death Stands Out

“’And I, if I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all peoples to Myself.’ This He said, signifying by what death He would die” (John 12:32-33 NKJV). In our world, our attention seems to stay focused on the human abuses: crimes, violence, riots, mobs, murders, drugs, wars, threats, bombs, destruction, and genocides. The cross of Jesus Christ stands above all our sordid history. In our world, we see headlines and reports of: boyfriend/girlfriend violent abuse, neglected & abused children, abortion murders, and merciless behavior toward each other. Above one Person in history had absolutely pure motives, words, deeds. Jesus died with love for you, so “let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water” (Hebrews 10:22 NKJV).
