Jesus–Our Substitute

March 28, 2022

Notes taken from "Life Is In the Blood" by Larry Ollison.

"In order to understand or have knowledge of the blood, we have to know about it.

John 8:31a-32

31 “...If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed.

32 "And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”

Hosea 4:6 says, “My people perish for a lack of knowledge.”

"It isn’t someone else’s people, but His people. God is telling us that unless we know the truth of His Word, we will perish.

"Jesus is the Word. Jesus is the Truth. Some people don’t like to dig into the scripture, verse by verse, and line by line. It takes time and diligence. But the Bible says all scripture is profitable for us to learn from, so we must take the time to study and unlock the mysteries of God’s Word.

"It just makes good sense to spend time understanding something that is going to profit us. Our Justifier - we need to know we are redeemed from the curse of the law. The law is not gone, but we have been redeemed from the curse of it."

For this week of devotions it is my intention to look into the Word of God to see where Jesus has become our Substitute in order to free us from the  law of sin and death.

Father, I pray that You direct us through this week’s devotions to see who we are in You, and who You are in us. I pray that Your people will be encouraged by hearing Your Word and gleaning from it. In Jesus's name I pray, Amen.

Blessings on the journey, and remember the best is yet to come!
