August 16-Death

Scripture Lesson: Philippians 2:8

On this date in 1920 at the Polo Grounds, Indians shortstop Ray Chapman suffers a skull fracture and dies the next day as a result of being hit by Yankee’s Carl Mays’ fastball. Chapman will be the only on field fatality in Major League Baseball history. His death began the discussion of safety for the players that culminated in the use of batting helmets in the 1950’s.

Today’s Scripture verse is about another death in history. In fact this death is the only death in the history of the world that can bring about eternal life for those who believe. Jesus humbles Himself and came to this world for only one purpose and that was to die for the sins of humanity. He followed God’s will for His life by going to the cross to die and he did so willingly because of His love for us! Jesus died the awful death on the cross, so that we might be able to enjoy eternal life in heaven. All we have to do is to accept the free gift of grace God gave us and believe!

1. Why was the death of Jesus so important?

2. What did Jesus give up to come to this world?

3. Why did Jesus have to die such a cruel death on the cross?

Praise God today for His love for us that sent Jesus to this world to die for our sins!
