The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the God of our fathers, has glorified his servant Jesus. You handed him over to be killed, and you disowned him before Pilate, though he had decided to let him go. You disowned the Holy and Righteous One and asked that a murderer be released to you. You killed the author of life, but God raised him from the dead. We are witnesses of this.
I am one of these wretched sinners. But, praise God that I am saved by His grace!
I pray the rest of the world finds Him before it is too late. It amazes me that many still adhere to the mantra in the verses above. As one songwriter put it, the world clings to the philosophy of “save the trees and kill the children.” Jesus, come soon!
