God's Gift

We can't fully understand all that the Lamb of God endured to save us

Christ gave His perfect life for sinful mankind. He assumed full responsibility for all our sins and took the punishment that we deserved. As He hung on the cross, the judgment and wrath of God was poured out on Him instead of on us.

Since we are limited by our human minds and senses, we cannot fully understand all that the Lamb of God endured to bring us salvation. But we know enough to realize that we owe Him our lives. He took our place on the cross; let’s give Him first place in our hearts. So thankful for the fact that God sent His Son to die in my place-and some day this very undeserving person-ME-will get to stand before the King of Kings and Lords of Lords and here Him call me His Child. What an amazing gift.

I pray that you will reflect this Easter weekend on that amazing gift, a gift like none other, and give thanks and praise for God's one and only Son and the sacrifice He made for each of us-even if we had been the only one-He would have died for just us!  

On this Pathway-
