Luke 23

Today, I started reading in Luke 23.  Here are a few thoughts:
1) NO FAULT- "I find no fault in this man" vs. 4; "found no fault in this man" vs. 14; "nothing worthy of death is done unto him."  vs. 15;  "I have found no cause of death in him" vs. 22;   Here four times are recorded that they had nothing against the Savior.  In another gospel it is mentioned five times.  Jesus died for our sins, not His.  He had none, but we had plenty.
2) THERE THEY CRUCIFIED HIM- vs. 33   The place of Calvary- there; The people of Calvary-they; The Punishment of Calvary-crucified; The Person of Calvary-HIM.  Jesus did it all for us! 
3) THIS IS THE KING OF THE JEWS- written in Greek, Latin, and Hebrew, this sign was on the cross above Jesus' head.  One day, the title:  KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS, will forever be etched in Heaven surrounding our Savior.  All will know who He is, and we (the saved) will rejoice with Him forever!  Cannot wait!
Hope you have a great day today.  Pastor Mike Mutchler
