Rejoicing in the One and Only!

Scripture reading for November 2nd:  Luke 23-24, John 1-3

Key Scriptures:  Luke 23:34-35  “Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.”  And they divided up His clothes by casting lots.  The people stood watching, and the rulers even sneered at Him.  They said, “He saved others; let Him save Himself if He is the Christ of God, the Chosen One.”  

John 1:14, 18  “The Word became flesh and made His dwelling among us.  We have seen His glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.  .  . .No one has ever seen God, but God the One and Only, who is at the Father’s side has made Him known.”  

Jesus was mocked and ridiculed as He hung on the cross for the sins of mankind.  He prayed for mercy on those who crucified Him because of their ignorance.  But to those who believed on Him, they got to behold the glory of ‘the One and Only’ who sits at the Father’s right hand!  They could see Him and not die but live!  Hallelujah!

Rejoicing in Christ Jesus:  “Dogs have surrounded Me; a band of evil men has encircled Me, they have pierced My hands and My feet.  I can count all My bones; people stare and gloat over Me.  They divide My garments among them and cast lots for My clothing.”  Psalm 22:16-18   “But,” He said, “you cannot see My face, for no one may see Me and live.  Then the Lord said, “There is a place near Me where you may stand on a rock.  When My glory passes by, I will put you in a cleft in the rock and cover you with My hand until I have passed by.”  (Exodus 33:20-22)
