A to Z: J is for Just One

J is for Just One

Another name of Jesus is: The Just One or Righteous One

(Acts 7:52 ESV) Which of the prophets did your fathers not persecute? And they killed those who announced beforehand the coming of the Righteous One, whom you have now betrayed and murdered,

(Acts 3:13-15 ESV)  The God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, the God of our fathers, glorified his servant Jesus, whom you delivered over and denied in the presence of Pilate, when he had decided to release him. But you denied the Holy and Righteous One, and asked for a murderer to be granted to you, and you killed the Author of life, whom God raised from the dead. To this we are witnesses.
 In Acts chapter 3 and 7 we hear of how the people murdered the ones who told of the Just/Righteous one and how even he himself was betrayed and murdered.

1. Reflect on what it means that  Jesus is the Just one and how that affects him taking on our guilt and dying on the cross for us.
2. Look it up in the bible.
3. Pray about it.
4. Write what you learned down and meditate on it throughout the day.

Have a great Wednesday!!
