Our Sacrifice

| | Comments (0)

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, cruel treatment and torture. It's hard for me to read or hear details of these sorts of actions, and I don't watch programs or movies that contain extreme brutality or violence. As such, I have to prepare myself for what I'm about to take in, the images that will come into my mind and the emotions I'm going to feel when I read the account of Jesus's crucifixion.

Jesus endured merciless beating and excruciating physical, emotional and mental torture so that we (you and I) could spend eternity with Him. He willingly took on the punishment for ALL of our sins--every single one of them! He was 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's 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 each of us deserve make you feel? What does Jesus's death, burial and resurrection mean for you personally? Tami
