“Let this Christ, the King of Israel, now come down from the cross, so that we may see and believe!” Those who were crucified with Him were also insulting Him. Mark 15:32 NASB
“He saved others; He cannot save Himself. He is the King of Israel; let Him now come down from the cross, and we will believe in Him. Matthew 27:42 NASB
Isn’t it said that “Seeing is believing”? I’ll believe it when I see it.
Are people any different today?
Jesus’ ministry lasted 3 years and in all that time He revealed Himself. Do you think that His coming down from the cross would have changed their minds? It is by faith that we are saved through God’s grace.
Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. Hebrews 11:1 NASB
for we walk by faith, not by sight 2 Corinthians 5:7 NASB
🌹 How about you? How is your faith?

This woman parted with all she had. Her livelihood was placed on the altar. She gave all she had for the glory of God.
How could she do that? She trusted in God to be her Jehovah-jireh – the Lord will provide.
🌹 What are you willing to lay on the altar for the glory of God? This woman gave her all.
And He said to them, “Truly I say to you, there is no one who has left house or wife or brothers or parents or children, for the sake of the kingdom of God, who will not receive many times as much at this time and in the age to come, eternal life.” Luke 18:29-30 NASB
