Jesus is crucified at the hands of lawless men, but He is ultimately delivered up for God’s people according to the plan of God the Father Himself. His shed blood and perfect obedience satisfy the wrath of God and secure the purchase price for the sins of His people. Because of Him, those who are in Christ are made righteous. May you respond to the good news of this Gospel today!

This week’s passage sees Jesus handed over for crucifixion, even as He is beaten and mocked by Roman soldiers. The beauty of the Gospel is that it is ultimately God the Father who hands Jesus over for His people. Because of God’s great love and mercy, He has included the crucifixion in His plan of salvation. And because Christ is crucified, His people are saved.

He gives His disciples a new meal to commemorate and to celebrate as His people await the consummation of His coming Kingdom. A good question to ask yourself is: does this reality make you want to sing like it did His first disciples?
