Nine is not a common Biblical number, but for this 999th post I needed to find something interesting from the Scriptures to reflect on. We remember how Jesus left the 99 sheep to save the one that was lost (Luke 15:4) - that, in itself, was remarkable and sends a strong message to all of us - God cares for the lost.
However, in the end I must stick with Mark's account of the Crucifixion.
"It was nine in the morning when they crucified him." - Mark 15:25
For me, I will remember 9 for this reason. Every morning we get to experience 9am, but do stop for a second to consider that Christ's crucifixion means we can live in Godly freedom every day of our lives?
May God bless you today. Please remember to reply to this post with the one blog post that has meant something to you - thanks.
