I will never be able to read Psalm 88 ever again without remembering hearing it read from the bottom of the pit where they lowered Jesus while held captive at the house of Caiaphas. Here are two pictures from our trip:
|The underside of the hole where Jesus was lowered |
down into total darkness.
|Part of the pit as it appears now.|
We can see the depths of the love that Jesus has for people in Luke 9:55-56a when some of His disciples wanted to call down fire from Heaven on people who would not receive Him:
55 But He turned and rebuked and severely censured them. He said, You do not know of what sort of spirit you are, 56 For the Son of Man did not come to destroy men's lives, but to save them [from the penalty of eternal death].
Jesus came to save, and He sent us to do the same! Who have YOU shared the Gospel with today? Here is Hillsong with an older song called "Tell The World":
Shalom in Him!
