Step outside your current scenario and take a moment to be enlightened. Let's use scenery, sensation and our imagination to explore something amazing that happened more than 2000 years ago.
You have sandals on your feet, sand between your toes and you are standing on a hill called Golgotha, “The place of a skull”. The air is still with surrounding darkness in the sky and the ground trembles underneath. Uneasiness fills your stomach and fear creeps in your mind as you look around and find yourself standing alone. You begin ascending to the top of the hill in hopes for an aerial view of your position. Arriving to the top of the hill in astounding awe, you are gazing upon a wooden cross with a man hanging on it.
This man is Jesus Christ, The Son of God.
Jesus had been betrayed, flogged, mocked, tortured and horrifically beaten beyond recognition. He was left on the cross to die by a people without remorse and not understanding what they had done. Those who crucified Jesus, lived with Him daily; witnessing His power and miracles before their eyes and they still refused to believe or accept Him as; The Son of God.
It’s important to understand this fact and allow it to penetrate deep into your spirit. Jesus died on the cross and took upon the sins of this World. Everyone that believes in Him and accepts Him as their Savior will have eternal life. If you were the only person that would be saved for the sake of the cross; Jesus would have done it all the same, just for you.
The Lamb was slaughtered, silent he stood. He looked at the people and wondered how they could.
He saw into their hearts and wickedness was within;
He cried tears of brokenness and died for their every sin.
His blood that He shed, every single drop; it had a purpose and it
could not be stopped.
The blood covers us and saves us from Hell;
Satan is defeated and he will not prevail.
Three days later, our Savior rose again;
the grave was empty and Jesus was raised from the dead!
He died for our sins;
He died out of love;
that not one would perish but live in eternity in Heaven above.
This world is not our real home, it's where we live and grow in relationship with Jesus until we reach our eternal destination with Christ!
I pray that you experience his love, joy and peace in a real and personal way today and every day.....
Dear Heavenly Father,
We praise, worship, honor and adore you. We are in awe of you. No words can express our gratefulness because of what you've done for us. Thank you for meeting us where we are; for loving, caring, protecting, and accepting us. Thank you saving and using us as a part of your glorious plan. God, who am I that you would love me?
Who am I that you would create and choose to spend eternity with me?
Your mercy, forgiveness and grace is freely available and yet so undeserved.
But I am simply, "yours". Your child who is chosen, called, redeemed, covered by the blood and saved by the cross. Thank you for your sacrifice and faithfulness. Amen
“The message of the cross is foolish to those who are headed for destruction! But we who are being saved know it is the very power of God.”
