Matthew 27:40  •  1 min. read  •  grade level: 2
If Thou be the Son of God, come down from the cross.
Was Jesus the Son of God? Absolutely. No question about it. Could He have come down from the cross? Yes, He could have. Why didn’t He? Because His love for you and me was SO STRONG that it kept Him on the cross. If Jesus had come down from the cross there would be no heaven for us. The Lord Jesus didn’t need to prove who He was by coming down from the cross. No, He proved who He was and proved His great love by staying there, by dying, shedding His blood, and rising from the dead after three days. Hallelujah, what a Saviour!
