Making the Purchase
(Luke 23:35) The people stood watching, and the rulers even sneered at him. They said, “He saved others; let him save himself if he is God’s Messiah, the Chosen One.”

Blinded by their sin, the crowd didn’t understand that they really didn’t want Jesus to save Himself from being crucified on the cross. If He had, it would have meant immediate death and perpetual hell for their souls. What was done to our Savior was the cruelest act of death; but He didn’t save Himself for two Eternal reasons: His love for God and His love for you and me. Jesus made a big purchase when He died on the cross. We are the living proof.
