Christ died for everyone. He died so that those who live should not live for themselves anymore. They should live for Christ. He died for them and was raised again. 2 Corinthians 5:15 NIV

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 be able to fully comprehend His sacrifice of love. He was held by rusty nails of hatred and hung on a cross to die! And, in the darkest moment for those who knew He was without sin, His final breath was taken. 

God gives us the gift of grace. Some describe it as “God’s riches at Christ’s expense.” He lovingly sacrificed Jesus, so His will would be fulfilled in our lives. He knows the heart of ALL suffering. He prepares us to humbly remember Jesus’ death, resurrection and plan for eternal life.

Our Father lifted His Son and allowed Him to rise. We need to be reminded, so we will have HOPE for tomorrow and remember there IS STRENGTH for today. We will experience the comfort of Jesus, if we seek Him with all of our hearts, know Him as Lord of our lives, turn from our selfish ways and receive Him.

The events of the crucifixion help us remember LOVE bears ALL things. No matter what we’re going through, Jesus IS with us! He will renew our hearts and cradle us in care. And, we will find peace in the One who died in our place. By the grace of God, we will gratefully understand; God takes care of His children.

Dear God, Thank you for Jesus! Open our hearts to live for Him. We are grateful for the One who died and rose again. Thank you for His sacrifice of love. Forgive us of our sin and bless the heart of our faithfulness, so we will recognize the love of our Savior and remember how very much we are loved. ♥ Amen
