HE TOOK MY PLACE

Devotional for Monday March 28, 2022


Morning 2 Corinthians 5:21

Noon Psalm 15

Evening Colossians 2:8-15


God loved us first, and it wasn't because of how good we were or because of what we deserved; he did it when our morality was covered with a white mask that hid the darkness inside us, when we had nothing to offer him. I was sitting in front of the holy and Creator Judge waiting for my sentence, having a prosecutor who condemned me in every possible way. Being anguished and in pain, without real knowledge of the seriousness of my faults, Christ took my place. Christ looked at me, picked me up and

he sat in my place saying these words: "I died for you!" His voice resounded in my being and my heart, it knocked down my pride, it broke my spirit, it moved the fibers of my existence. Instantly I cried. I cried out of love, gratitude, guilt and pain; my Intercessor did not open his mouth, only his acts and presence filled that place. The prosecutor ran overwhelmed with fear, and the Judge, standing up, affirmed: "This is my beloved son, in whom I am pleased!" The sacrifice of the immolated Lamb satisfied the justice of the Father, washed away my sins in his precious blood, took my transgressions upon Himself, nailing my certificate of condemnation to His Cross.

Morning 2 Corinthians 5:21

For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.


Noon Psalm 15

1 Lord, who shall abide in thy tabernacle? who shall dwell in thy holy hill?

2 He that walketh uprightly, and worketh righteousness, and speaketh the truth in his heart.

3 He that backbiteth not with his tongue, nor doeth evil to his neighbour, nor taketh up a reproach against his neighbour.

4 In whose eyes a vile person is contemned; but he honoureth them that fear the LORD. He that sweareth to his own hurt, and changeth not.

5 He that putteth not out his money to usury, nor taketh reward against the innocent. He that doeth these things shall never be moved.


Evening Colossians 2:8-15

8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.

9 For in him dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.

10 And ye are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:

11 In whom also ye are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body of the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ:

12 Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead.

13 And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses;

14 Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;

15 And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it.

 

Prayer Guide: [Cuba-San Cristóbal] and [Panamá-Los Llanos de Ocú]


March's challenge: Do everything possible so that your life can be a visible testimony to all men as Christians living in the likeness of Christ. Everyday, praise your Creator. Keep a constant praise on your lips. Listen to Christian praise and worship music with your family. Go to Church, not only to be a spectator, but a worshiper. Worship as you pray, worship as you read the Bible, worship in your illness, always worship.


Annual Bible reading: 2 Samuel 18, 19, 20
