The massive nails crushing his hands, and suspending him by his own flesh? Yeah, that was meant for us. We deserved the pain and betrayal of the cross, but something miraculous happened: Love – in the form of God’s son – stepped in the way and took God’s wrath for us, all so that all of us messed-up creatures could have a relationship with the Creator of the Universe.
Alive. That’s what His death and resurrection made us. So the question remains: Should I not give up all I can to repay his sacrifice?
Let’s pray for God’s guidance and ask Him to show you how we can PURPOSEFULLY live out His love.
