Drawn Near to us in Love

Preachers Corner https://www.preacherscorner.org.uk

God has drawn near to us through his beloved son the Lord Jesus Christ. When mankind sinned separation between us and God came in. Why? Because of the holiness and perfection of God but forgiveness and peace can be given to you through the work at calvary.

Bible Scriptures: Darby Translation 

John 1:14-17 And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us (and we have contemplated his glory, a glory as of an only-begotten with a father), full of grace and truth; (John bears witness of him, and he has cried, saying, This was he of whom I said, He that comes after me is preferred before me, for he was before me;)  for of his fulness we all have received, and grace upon grace.  For the law was given by Moses: grace and truth subsists through Jesus Christ.”

Luke 18:31-43And he took the twelve to [him] and said to them, Behold, we go up to Jerusalem, and all things that are written of the Son of man by the prophets shall be accomplished; for he shall be delivered up to the nations, and shall be mocked, and insulted, and spit upon.  And when they have scourged [him] they will kill him; and on the third day he will rise again. And they understood nothing of these things. And this word was hidden from them, and they did not know what was said. And it came to pass when he came into the neighbourhood of Jericho, a certain blind man sat by the wayside begging.  And when he heard the crowd passing, he inquired what this might be. And they told him that Jesus the Nazaraean was passing by. And he called out saying, Jesus, Son of David, have mercy on me. And those [who were] going before rebuked him that he might be silent; but *he* cried out so much the more, Son of David, have mercy on me. And Jesus stood still, and commanded him to be led to him. And when he drew nigh he asked him [saying],  What wilt thou that I shall do to thee? And he said, Lord, that I may see. And Jesus said to him, See: thy faith has healed thee. And immediately he saw, and followed him, glorifying God. And all the people when they saw [it] gave praise to God.

Luke 23:32-33Now two others also, malefactors, were led with him to be put to death.And when they came to the place which is called Skull, there they crucified him, and the malefactors, one on the right hand, the other on the left.” 

Luke 23:44-49And it was about [the] sixth hour, and there came darkness over the whole land until [the] ninth hour. And the sun was darkened, and the veil of the temple rent in the midst. And Jesus, having cried with a loud voice, said, Father, into thy hands I commit my spirit. And having said this, he expired.  Now the centurion, seeing what took place, glorified God, saying, In very deed this man was just. And all the crowds who had come together to that sight, having seen the things that took place, returned, beating [their] breasts. And all those who knew him stood afar off, the women also who had followed him from Galilee, beholding these things.” 

Luke 24:1-9But on the morrow of the sabbath, very early indeed in the morning, they came to the tomb, bringing the aromatic spices which they had prepared. And they found the stone rolled away from the sepulchre. And when they had entered they found not the body of the Lord Jesus. And it came to pass as they were in perplexity about it, that behold, two men suddenly stood by them in shining raiment. And as they were filled with fear and bowed their faces to the ground, they said to them, Why seek ye the living one among the dead? He is not here, but is risen: remember how he spoke to you, being yet in Galilee, saying, The Son of man must be delivered up into the hands of sinners, and be crucified, and rise the third day. And they remembered his words; and, returning from the sepulchre, related all these things to the eleven and to all the rest.”
