Red Letter Wisdom-Jesus Fulfilled the Father’s Will

November 12th, 2019

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Wisdom from the Red Letters is found in John 14:30 and 31.

Jesus said to His disciples the night before He was crucified, “I will not speak with you much longer, for the prince of this world is coming. He has no hold on me, but the world must learn that I love the Father and that I do exactly what my Father has commanded me.”

The cross is the place where this statement was revealed in a compelling way. Satan wanted Jesus to die. We know that because he entered in Judas Iscariot to betray Jesus over to death. And it was God’s will for Jesus to die as a ransom for many. Satan’s motivation was the destruction of humanity. God’s motivation was the salvation of humanity. By Jesus being willing to go to the cross, He did exactly what His Father sent Him to do. By rising from the dead, He proved that Satan had no hold on Him.

The words of Jesus inspire us to be amazed at what God has done through the cross and empty grave in the Year of Redemption.
