Sunday Scripture Blessing ~ 12 31 17

  • They stripped Jesus and put a scarlet robe on him
  • They put a crown of thorns on his head
  • The spit on him
  • They struck him with a staff on his head again and again
  • They mocked him
  • Then they crucified him

What shall I do then with Jesus who is call the Messiah? Pilate asked
They all answered 'Crucify Him'
Pilate took water and washed his hands in front of the crowd. I am innocent of this man's blood, he said. It is your responsibility.
All the people answered, 'His blood is on us and on our children'.
Then he released Barabas to them, had Jesus flogged, and handed him over to be crucified.
Joseph, a rich man from Arimathea bought a plot and that is where Jesus was buried.
In three days, Jesus was risen, and when the eleven disciples saw Jesus, he came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the HolySpirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age."

And, even after all , a Loving Jesus is still there for us with only one command...that we ask and believe on him. We are forgiven. We are washed clean with his sacrifice. How awesome even after all that he suffered.

Reading in Matthew. From the birth and to the resurrection. And doing some Bible Journaling. Messed up the word Gethsemane when I tried to emboss it. For some reason, I never have good luck with the embossing.

Hope everyone had a lovely Christmas and that 2018 is gracious to everyone, and we find some Peace for our world.

Blessed is he who comes in the name of the LORD. Matthew 23:39

Was excited to find this Journaling Bible at a great bargain at a local store. They get Bibles in that must be overstocks, and they offer them much lower than market price. This one was marked $16.99, and I got it with my discount coupon for $15.29. I kept looking at it and thinking that I didn't really need it, but with such a good price, and I do like to get different Bible versions and this one that is ESV, I didn't have that added to my collection yet. The one I have now only gives space on the edge for journaling, but this one has a full page after each page of scripture. I do find for me that with reading the scripture and then deciding how to journal and do notes after my reading helps me to reflect on the scriptures. I haven't journaled in it yet since I haven't finished my other one yet.

  1. It always gives me chills when I think of how the crowd yelled to crucify our Lord. Such a horrible moment followed by incredible pain. I'm so thankful for our Perfect Sacrifice and the salvation that was offered to me.

  2. That journaling Bible is beautiful! I too turn directly to thoughts of the crucifixion and resurrection. After Christmas my thoughts are on the cross.

    1. For some reason, I cannot comment on your posts. It just keeps giving me security invalid token as the response. I try using my Wordpress, my Google, and my Blogger website address but none will go through. Didn't want you to think I haven't visited and commented. Been this way for last few times. I don't see a contact for you so could let you know so hopefully you will see this reply. ~hugs~ and hope you have a nice New Year. Thank you for visiting and linking with Sunday Scripture Blessings. Always look forward to your link and posts. :)

  3. It saddens me that this crowd cursed their children and future generations without even thinking twice. What retributions did this have?
    My hearts aches to think about what they did to Jesus!
