Bible Text: John 12:31-32 |


“Now is the time for judgment on this world; now the prince of this world will be driven out. 32 And I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all people to myself.”

What changes Jesus’ death on the Cross brings!

After all the excitement of His triumphal entry into Jerusalem, Jesus shocks His disciples by predicting his approaching death.

Look carefully at John 12:31-32. See three great truths:

Disclosure of the world’s sin [In hatred, the ones Jesus came to rescue killed him.]

Defeat of Satan [Our Enemy lost his hold on us once Christ’s blood was
offered on our behalf.]

Deliverance of sinful men [Nailed there on the Cross between heaven and
earth, Jesus saves by satisfying all the demands of God’s justice.]

These blessings must be obtained in the light of the cross, through prayer.
