Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends. (John 15:13)
There are a lot of ways to express love to other people, but there is no greater way than to actually trade your life for someone else’s life. One of the things that makes Jesus unique among other gods is that he willingly gave up his life for those of us who deserve death. But, his resurrection signified that God accepted his payment that we might be made right before Him regardless of our sins. To find out more, I’d invite to listen to our church’s series, Back to the Cross. Happy Easter!
Father, thank You for Jesus’ sinless sacrifice for sin – for his willingness to give up his life for mine. Help me not to take what he did for granted. Help me to live in light of the resurrection each and every day.
