The Surprising Switch

Matthew 27:15-56

 

Consider the Choice!

Option One: The Law demands Justice!

~ James 2:10               For whoever keeps the whole law and yet stumbles in one point, he has become guilty of all.

 

~ Ezekiel 18:4             Behold, all souls are Mine; the soul of the father as well as the soul of the son is Mine. The soul who sins will die.

 

~ Romans 6:23            For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

 

Option Two: Grace extends Forgiveness!

~ Romans 6:23            For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

 

~ Romans 3:24            being justified as a gift by His grace through the redemption which is in Christ Jesus;

 

~ Ephesians 2:8           For by grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God;

 

 

Consider Grace!

Grace takes our Place!

~ II Corinthians 5:21   He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.

 

Grace takes our Punishment!

~ Isaiah 53:7               He was oppressed and He was afflicted,
Yet He did not open His mouth;
Like a lamb that is led to slaughter,
And like a sheep that is silent before its shearers,
So He did not open His mouth.

 

Grace takes our Penalty!

~ Isaiah 53:4-6            Surely our griefs He Himself bore,
And our sorrows He carried;
Yet we ourselves esteemed Him stricken,

Smitten of God, and afflicted.
But He was pierced through for our transgressions,
He was crushed for our iniquities;
The chastening for our well-being fell upon Him,
And by His scourging we are healed.
All of us like sheep have gone astray,
Each of us has turned to his own way;
But the Lord has caused the iniquity of us all
To fall on Him.

 

 

Consider the Response!

Many Reject Christ!

~ II Thessalonians 1:8-9         dealing out retribution to those who do not know God and to those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus. These will pay the penalty of eternal destruction, away from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power,

 

Few Follow Christ!

~ Hebrews 10:26         For if we go on sinning willfully after receiving the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins,

 

~ Matthew 22:14          For many are called, but few are chosen.”

 

~ John 10:14               I am the good shepherd, and I know My own and My own know Me,
