Our Sacrifice

| | Comments (2)

Today's reading: Matthew 27:24-44; Mark 15:16-40; Luke 23:26-49; John 19:1-30

I struggle with anything to do with physical abuse and torture. It's hard for me to read or hear details of cruel treatment and torture, and I don't watch programs or movies that contain extremely brutal or torturous violence. So I have to prepare myself for what I'm about to take in and the images that I know will come into my head whenever I read the account of Jesus' crucifixion. Jesus endured merciless beating and excruciating physical and emotional torture so that we (you and I) could spend eternity with Him in heaven. He willingly took on the punishment for each of our sins--a perfect, sinless sacrifice for us. Thank you, Jesus, for Your great love and Your sacrifice for me.

Read through at least one of the accounts of Jesus' crucifixion, doing your best to imagine what this event was like for all involved, but especially for Jesus. How does knowing that Jesus willingly took on the punishment that we each deserve make you feel? What does Jesus' crucifixion mean for you personally? Tami

Thankful, humbled,
That Jesus died for me because He new I couldn’t overcome own my own. Jesus died for me, Jesus died for me, Jesus died for me!
He loves me in spite of my weakness, in spite of my sinfulness and in spite of the fact that I fail Him daily He LOVES ME and wants me to be mindful of Him and His work in my life everyday.
