Did you ever hear that wonderful chorus “He could have called ten thousand angels to destroy the world and set Him free; He would have called ten thousand angels, but He died alone for you and me”? Today’s devotional brings the same message. Think about it; meditate on it; and then thank Him. God bless you.
Because of Calvary,
1 Peter 3:18
“For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive in the spirit,
“…He suffered willingly, resolutely, without any compulsion. At any moment, he might have broken loose from the cross, he might have called for twelve legions of angels, and scattered all his foes; he might have flung off his body, and appeared before them as a consuming fire utterly to destroy them; or, retaining his humanity, he might have smitten them with blindness, or wrought some other miracle, and so have escaped from them.” [Charles Haddon Spurgeon, The Metropolitan Tabernacle PulpitXLIV, (London: Passmore and Alabaster, 1898), p. 271]
