Re: I Put Jesus on the Cross!
Let us not curse the Jews for delivering Jesus to be crucified. Let us not single out the Romans in blaming them for putting Jesus on the cross....Every one of us in Adam's race had a share in putting Him on the cross ! I have often wondered how any professing Christian man or woman could approach the communion table and participate in the memorial of our Lord's death without teeming and sensing the pain and the shame of the inward confession, "I, too, am among those who helped put Him on the cross !" The prophet [Isaiah] reminds us clearly that the Saviour was bruised for "our iniquities" [53:5]....the fingerprints of all mankind are plain evidence against us. --A. W. Tozer
As it is written: "There is none righteous, no, not one; There is none who understands; There is none who seeks after God. They have all turned aside; They have together become unprofitable; There is none who does good, no, not one." (Rom 3:10-12)
This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am chief. However, for this reason I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might show all longsuffering, as a pattern to those who are going to believe on Him for everlasting life. (1 Tim 1:16) (VW)
