As we reflect on the crucifixion of Jesus today, I am deeply grateful for the price He paid for me. But the thing is, He didn’t just do it for me, He chose all of us to be the recipient of the gift of salvation and eternal life in Heaven with Him.
As Jesus walked in our shoes for a time, He suffered as we do, yet He didn’t deserve any of it. Actually, He suffered far greater than anything we will ever have to face. But He did it out of LOVE. Love for each one of us. He took our blame and bore the wrath that should’ve come upon us.
The power of the cross is the very power that saves us from the depths of Hell, in which we all deserve. All we have to do is accept the gift He gave on the cross that day.
