The Miracle of the Crucifixion - November 11, 2020

John 19:30 says, “When he had received the drink, Jesus said, ‘It is finished.’ With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.” Does the crucifixion qualify as a miracle? By all means. It embodies every feature of the other miracles in John’s gospel. Water didn’t become wine, but sinners became saints. On Calvary Jesus didn’t heal a servant with a proclamation; he healed all generations with an affirmation. On Good Friday Jesus didn’t tell a lame man to walk; he invited all of us to dance.

With a single proclamation Jesus fed more than a crowd, stilled more than a storm, and gave sight to more than one man. His command at the Bethany cemetery was enough to call Lazarus from the grave. His announcement on Calvary was sufficient to save all who believe in him from eternal death. Remember, friends, you are never alone.
