Ultimate Love

"But God shows His love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us."
Romans 5:8

Beaten, broken, scarred, close to death –Stumbling, falling until someone had to carry His burden. Nailed to the cross--arms open wide in surrender,
A crown of thorns--King of the Jews was on the sign above His head.
“Father; forgive them--they know not what they do”
Darkness fell and our sins held Him until He cried “It is finished!”
Droplets of blood flowed from His body onto the ground.

Beaten, broken, scarred, close to death - Stumbling, falling under a burden too heavy to carry, Struggling forward, sin nailed into our hearts;
We fall; arms opened wide in surrender
“GOD! Jesus, please take my life, my will, my way, my sin!
Forgive me, I didn’t know!”

With each word, the sin that nails us is pulled from our hearts. Chains and shackles of pride and compromise fall away. We lay face down, barely breathing. The Risen Saviour touches a tear-stained face with His nail-scarred hands. He lifts our burden and looks into the eyes of His beloved child and says “It is finished; your sins are washed away by my blood”

Yesterday as I prayed I couldn’t help but see the parallel of a body beaten and broken for us and lives that are beaten and broken in need of a Saviour

Let the light of Jesus shine into your life. Read the Bible. Ask questions and find out how to deliver the burden of your sins into the hands of Jesus.

"We love because He first loved us."  1 John 4:19
