Battle in the City (Palm Sunday)Play Audio
Have you ever wondered what Satan knew about God’s plan and Jesus’ death? After all, Satan is not all-knowing, and therefore he would have had to figure it out on his own. He did know that Jesus had not sinned, and he did know that Jesus was the Son of God, but when the truth about Jesus’ mission finally dawned on him, I can only imagine his anger.
Today we will examine the second part of God’s ultimate weapon in Jesus Christ – Obedience. For it was His perfect obedience to the plan of God that allowed a sinless man to die, thus paying the price for all who have ever sinned. And this was such a powerful weapon that Satan tried everything to get Christ to change his mind.
And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to death — even death on a cross!
