Enjoy Life, Enjoy God

We sometimes say, "How right you are;" it's simply an expression to confirm the truth of what's been said, even if the one saying it did not know its profundity.

All the people answered, "His blood is on us and on our children!"
                                                 Matthew 27:25 TNIV

Pontius Pilate has just said, "I'm not responsible for crucifying this innocent man," and the people shout again, "Crucify him," and "His blood is on us." How right they were, but only half right. Perhaps they understood that they were taking responsibility for Jesus' crucifixion, but they did not understand the much bigger truth.

The blood of the sacrificial lamb was shed for them; the atonement for our upon us, thus saving us from ourselves. God saved us from ourselves with the innocent blood on us. Amazing grace indeed.
