JESUS Did It For You

July 4, 2016

Matthew 27:22

Pilate said to them, “What then shall I do with Jesus who is called Christ?”

They all said to him, “Let Him be crucified!”

Good Morning Men.

I read an article last night, titled ‘A Letter to My Sons About Pornography‘, great message that I would highly encourage you to go and read at your leisure. Halfway through there was something that really caught my attention. In the context of this article it was a way to deal with the sinful temptations of pornography. However I want to use this for our sinful battle with everything we encounter as men, fighting daily for our salvation in Christ.

This quote, was quoted in the article:

“For every look at yourself, take ten looks at Christ.”

Men today my goal is to share a handful of verses with you, that display the love, power, grace, holiness and majesty of our savior Jesus Christ. Men, I want these verses to be ingrained into our hearts and minds. I want us to turn to them when sin knocks at our door. I want us to use them as sin destroying blows of the sword of the spirit. Remember, when you are a blood bought son of God, you are more than a conqueror. You are victorious in Christ. Stop feeling defeated and guilty. Stop allowing sin to control your life because of a victim mindset. Fight daily men. Work out your salvation with fear and trembling.

Matthew 27:22

Pilate said to them, “What then shall I do with Jesus who is called Christ?”

They all said to him, “Let Him be crucified!”

  • Men the King of Kings and Lord of Lords that created the world as we know with the words of His mouth allowed wicked, and sinful men to crucify Him. The ultimate example of humility and obedience. Jesus did it for you.

Matthew 27:26

Then he released Barabbas to them; and when he had scourged Jesus, he delivered Him to be crucified.

  • Jesus was perfectly sinless, traded for a sinful man. Jesus was scourged, a punishment so severe and brutal that most of us would be queasy just watching it on video. This punishment left meat, tendons and flesh ripped to shreds, hanging of the bone. Jesus did it for you.

Matthew 27:29-31

29 When they had twisted a crown of thorns, they put it on His head, and a reed in His right hand. And they bowed the knee before Him and mocked Him, saying, “Hail, King of the Jews!”30 Then they spat on Him, and took the reed and struck Him on the head. 31 And when they had mocked Him, they took the robe off Him, put His own clothes on Him, and led Him away to be crucified.

  • Men, Jesus is God. The God of the universe who with a single word could have called thousands of angels to destroy this entire city. Yet He endured this in silence. He endured a crown of thorns, when His heavenly crown was waiting for Him. Jesus endured spit in His face. Mocked with the most obscene and vulgar language that hell could throw at Him. Jesus did it for you.

Matthew 27:35

Then they crucified Him, and divided His garments, casting lots, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet:

“They divided My garments among them,
And for My clothing they cast lots.”

  • Crucifixion was the most brutal and savage punishment of the time. It was a slow and agonizing death. This is after the scourging, spit still running down His face, mocking still continuing as enormous nails drive through His hands and feet. Jesus did it for you.

Men when you are tempted, when you are feeling weak and broken, our Lord Jesus Christ paid the ultimate sacrifice for you. Turn to Jesus, trust in Him with all your heart. He died so we can have life. Life here on earth, and life with Him for eternity in heaven. Jesus did it for you.
