We make sacrifices every day with our time, energy, and money sometimes for others. Putting ourselves on the back burner to make life easier or more special for someone else. Do we do it because down the road we might need to call in a favor? Do we make the sacrifice to be able to boast and brag about it to anyone who will listen? Do we sacrifice because somebody sacrificed for us at some previous point in our life? Are we doing it out of love?
Christ sacrificed his life for all of us because he loves all of us.
Reminders of the Sacrifice
I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep. John 10:11
But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5:8)
Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many. (Matthew 20:28)
I thank him for that sacrifice by reading his word and being obedient to his word daily. I want to know what the word of God says about the goodness of Jesus and what he did for me and how to be more like him. Amen
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. (John 3:16)
This is love. This is the love God has for you and me, sacrificing his son Jesus.
But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. (Isaiah 53:5)
The sacrifices that I have done thus far don’t compare to the one that sacrificed his life, so that through him I could be saved. Hallelujah to the lamb for I am saved, because of the ultimate sacrifice of his blood.
Jesus Paid It All. I will always remember the sacrifice.
