Father I’m grateful and will be eternally grateful for the sacrifices of Your Son, Jesus Christ, for in His obedience He gave His human life in order to reveal to the rest of Your children the eternal life that awaits us. He loved us but loved You more, and through that love I am here and this experience is priceless. Thank You for all that I have and all that I am, and most importantly, thank You for the gift of Your Son—my direct link to You! Praising You and Your gifts, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
Jesus loved us so much that He sacrificed what the vast majority of us are holding on for dear life. I can honestly tell you that I wouldn’t be so obedient and loving to sacrifice my life for millions of people I don’t know, and in a way that was so painful both physically and mentally. The denigration was horrific. The betrayal by His disciples was anticipated but still crippling. Watching people He healed spit upon Him, throw stones, and yell “crucify him” over and over—that had to cut deep. It only proves how strong, brave, obedient, great, and wondrous Jesus is and why He was chosen to be our Savior. He loves us. Show your love by being loving towards others, serve the least of God’s children fully and without question, and do whatever it takes to protect your heart and mind from the enemy’s attacks.
