Today we reflect on the sacrifice of Christ.
Over 2000 years ago Jesus paid the ultimate price for us. He took the wrath of God on our behalf. He completed all that He came to accomplish, bringing salvation to the World.
"After this, Jesus, knowing that all was now finished, said (to fulfill the Scripture), “I thirst.” A jar full of sour wine stood there, so they put a sponge full of the sour wine on a hyssop branch and held it to his mouth. When Jesus had received the sour wine, he said, “It is finished,” and he bowed his head and gave up his spirit." John 19:28-30
Jesus willingly gave up His Spirit, willingly drank the cup that should have been ours. He willingly separated Himself from His Father so we could be with Him for all eternity.
Thank You, Jesus, for willingly giving Yourself up for me!
