Last Temptation

Tuesday August 27th, Hebrews 12: 24 You've come to Jesus, who presents us with a new covenant, a fresh charter from God. He is the Mediator of this covenant. The murder of Jesus, unlike Abel's—a homicide that cried out for vengeance—became a proclamation of grace.  On the cross, Jesus took all the evil humanity can give and proclaimed that it is not more evil than all the good God can give.  In the book and film, “the last temptation of Christ,” the depiction was the strongest argument to just give into to the tempters plan for the world.  The gift of grace was Jesus’ “no” to the temptations of this world, temptations to just give in, temptations we all succumb to, and “yes” to God’s way of self-giving love and the gift of eternal life for all.  The gift of the cross is salvation for all.
