JESUS Is LORD

You sent Your Son into the world

so that I might live through Him (1 John 4:9).

All Your promises in Him are Yes,

and in Him Amen, to Your glory (2 Cor 1:20).

 

He is perfectly adapted to my needs

—holy, blameless, unstained by sin,

separated from sinners, and

exalted higher than the heavens (Heb 7:25,26).

 

My LORD JESUS CHRIST, the Messiah,

yielded Himself up to atone for my sin

and to save and sanctify me—

to rescue and deliver me from this present age (Gal 1:3-4).

 

In Him I was made Your heritage

and I obtained an inheritance (Eph 1:11).

In accordance with Your will and

purpose and plan, my FATHER (Gal 1:4).

KING DAVID’S PROPHECIES OF CHRIST’S PASSION

You, FATHER, “…took me (JESUS) from the womb;

you made me trust you at my mother’s breasts.

On you was I cast from my birth,

and from my mother’s womb you have been my God” (Ps 22:9-10 ESV).

 

“Be not far from me, for trouble is near,

and there is none to help.

I am poured out like water,

and all my bones are out of joint;…” (Ps 22:11,14 ESV).

 

“…my heart is like wax;

it is melted within my breast;

my strength is dried up like a potsherd,

and my tongue sticks to my jaws;…” (Ps 22:14-15 ESV).

 

“…you lay me in the dust of death.

For dogs encompass me;

a company of evildoers encircles me;

they have pierced my hands and feet—“ (Ps 22:15-16 ESV).

 

“I can count all my bones—

they stare and gloat over me;

they divide my garments among them,

and for my clothing they cast lots” (Ps 22:17-18 ESV).

 

“But you, O Lord,

do not be far off!

O you my help,

come quickly to my aid” (Ps 22:19 ESV)!

FATHER, remind me anew that CHRIST was fully human in His flesh and vividly felt the pressure to rescue Himself out of danger, but instead deferred to You for help that He might be able to perform Your will in total, sinless, obedience.

“Oh that you would rend the heavens and come down,

or perceived by the ear,
