I hear the Savior say”Thy strength indeed is small Child of weakness, watch and pray
Find in me thine all in all” Jesus paid it all, all to Him I owe Sin had left a crimson stain
He washed it white as snow And when before the throne I stand in Him complete
Jesus died my soul to save My lips shall still repeat Jesus paid it all, all to Him I owe
Sin had left a crimson stain He washed it white as snow”
I love this song! It is something we need every day as a reminder that our debt has been paid! Jesus took the ultimate pain so that we may be saved through Him. What an awesome sacrifice He made for us that we may have a chance at eternity with Him. Jesus was mocked, spit upon, beaten and humiliated for you, YES YOU! EACH AND EVERYONE OF YOU, HE DID IT ALL FOR YOU! HOW AMAZING IS IT? lets take a look at John 3:16, we all know this verse “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believes in Him may not perish but have eternal life.” Let that sink in and really understand what God did for all of us. Imagine for a second that you gave your child, your own flesh and blood as a sacrifice so that others may live. It holds such a powerful message. God loved us SO MUCH that in order to save the world He sacrificed His only so that we may live in eternity with our Lord and Savior!!!!! I don’t know about you but that speaks volume! JESUS WAS CRUCIFIED FOR YOU!!!!!!
Lets look at the definition of crucifixion: An extremely difficult, painful trial; torturous suffering. a method of putting to death by nailing or binding to a cross, normally by the hands and feet. OUCH! seriously, Jesus took Nails in each one of His hands and through the tops on His feet. They also put on Him a crown of thorns which would cause His Head to bleed. Who do you know that would go through all of that just for you? My guess is no one!
In Matthew 27 after they nailed Jesus to the cross they stood the cross upright and atop the cross was a sign that read “King of the Jews” as Jesus hung there people continued to mock Him and laughed at him while spitting on His face saying “If you are the Son of God save yourself King of the Jews, come down from the cross. They didn’t believe He was who He said he was. As He hung there they begin to rip the garments from His body. Now in the sixth hour there was darkness that surrounded the land until the ninth hour and it was in the ninth hour that Jesus cried out ““Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” that is, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” and gave up His spirit. immediately the curtain in the Holy temple was torn in two front top to bottom. Now this was no ordinary curtain, this was a very thick and very heavy curtain. and after that they buried Him in a tomb and rolled a huge stone in front of the opening to the cave.
All the soldiers and centurions were probably laughing and throwing a party know that they just crucified Jesus and thought he was gone. Oh but little did they know that on the third day after His death Jesus rose from the Grave, He conquered death and has risen! JESUS CHRIST HAS RISEN!!!! You see Jesus went through death so that through His resurrection we can be saved! I’m here to tell you that MY GOD’S NOT DEAD, HE’S SURELY ALIVE!!!!! LET US REJOICE THAT OUR GOD IS ALIVE!!!! HOLY HOLY IS THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY! Happy Easter everyone and God bless!
Living, He loved me, Dying He saved me, Buried He carried my sins far away, Rising He justified freely forever, One day He’s coming
Oh glorious day, oh glorious day – Casting Crowns: Glorious Day
