Max Lucado, “Grace for the Moment Daily Bible”

“Jesus planned his own sacrifice.

It means Jesus intentionally planted the tree from which his cross would be carved.
It means he willingly placed the iron ore in the heart of the earth from which the nails would be cast.
It means he voluntarily placed his Judas in the womb of a woman.
It means Christ was the one who set in motion the political machinery that would send Pilate to Jerusalem.

And it also means he didn’t have to do it — but he did.”

(John 19:11)

  1. What an awesome devotion! Yes, we know Jesus died of His own free will, but never had I thought of all the underlying intentionalities of His sacrifice. Thank you Lord, for loving us so!
