DAILY READINGS: 1 Kings 12; Jeremiah 21-22; Colossians:1:1-20
Then released he Barabbas unto them and...delivered him to be crucified. Matthew:27:26
I have often wondered if Barabbas went to Calvary following his release. Did he perhaps look into the face of the crucified Jesus and quietly say, "Because You are dying there, I live"? Admittedly, we do not know what his thoughts were. Every child of God, however, can say, on the authority of Holy Scripture, "He died for me." —George Hall
No other hope, no other plea;
He took my place and died for me;
O precious Lamb of Calvary!
He took my place and died for me.
—Eliza E. Hewitt
