18 March 2018    THE THREE CROSSES OF CALVARY My Jesus Knows Just What I Need mp3 "And when they were come to the place, which is called Calvary, there they crucified him, and the criminals, one on his right hand, and the other on his left" Luke 23:33 So they took Jesus, and He went out, bearing his own cross, to the place called The Place of a Skull, which in Aramaic is called Golgotha. There they crucified him, and with him two others, one on either side, and Jesus between them.  John 19:16-18 The Middle Cross mp3 Cross Number Two, The Cross of Rejection.     "And one of the malefactors which were hanged railed on him, saying: If thou be Christ, save thyself and us" Luke 23:39.  The man on this cross openly rejected Jesus as the Son of God or as Lord and Saviour. He died without hope. The world today bears this cross, as does anyone who rejects God and His plan. "Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened... Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed forever" Romans 1:21-25. It is sad, but the prodigal and the disobedi-ent and the lukewarm Christian will bear this cross in the Judgment. On the other hand, the cross of redemption and the grace of God are free to all. "Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest" Matthew 11:28. Will you look on Jesus and choose to live?  Or turn away in rejection and die?
