For this is how God loved the world: He gave His one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16 NLT
Jesus led the way to the hill where He would die. The weight of the world scarred His flesh and broke the hearts of those who felt His pain. We will never fully understand this type of amazing LOVE. But if we reach for the hands that were scared for our sin, we will feel the LOVE of God’s amazing grace and find comfort while we're cradled in His care.
God lovingly sacrificed Jesus, so His will would be fulfilled. He knows the heart of ALL suffering. He prepares us to remember Jesus’ death, resurrection and plan for eternal life. He reminds us there will come a day of NO MORE sadness and suffering.
God lifted His Son and allowed Him to rise. We need to be reminded, so we will have HOPE for tomorrow and STRENGTH for today. We need the LOVE of Jesus every moment of our lives. HE is the way to the Father.
It's hard to think about the pain of Christ, when we’re dealing with our own. But we need to be reminded of the cross, so we will understand it wasn’t nails that held Him there! Jesus didn’t stay where He took His final breath. He died and rose again! He lives because of God’s great LOVE. We can celebrate our risen Lord and never doubt the depth of His LOVE for each one of us.
We are not held by fear! God helps us witness the goodness of life, as we experience a living relationship with the One who came to save. It was LOVE that held Jesus to the cross. It is LOVE that will help us overcome! Nothing compares to the gift of this greatness!
We must leave our doubt in the hands of Jesus and find courage to recognize what’s already been done. Grace is GOD’S RICHES AT CHRIST’S EXPENSE” Let us praise Him with thankfulness and strength only He WILL provide! Truly, there is no greater LOVE. ♥
Dear God, Thank you for Jesus! Oh, how we need the presence of His peace! Help us remember who knows our suffering and give us HOPE as we surrender to YOU. We will remember the sacrifice of Your precious Son and be grateful for the gift of our salvation. We’re so grateful for the One who came to save. Thank you, Lord! Thank you for the power of Your everlasting LOVE. Amen
