We were once prisoners of sin. Nothing good we did could change the fact that we were still sinners. But God being LOVE gave up His son to die on the cross for you and I .
So you realize how much it cost to cover our sins. Yet because Jesus’ love is selfless, always kind and patient. His love having no high opinion of itself and never being arrogant with pride — He took the punishment by which we have peace.
He paid it willingly so we could live. He chose the cross to suffer for our sake. He embraced death for our sins not his — He never committed any. To mock His claim of authority and to cause Him pain, a wooven crown of thorns was placed on His head.
You see, our Jesus was so strong that even after He was beaten, scourged and tortured, He carried the cross. Men were so cruel to Him but He was gentle and quiet; like a Lamb led to the slaughter.
He was wounded for our transgressions. He was crushed for our iniquities. He did not open His mouth — as a sheep that before its shearers is silent. His love for us kept Him on the cross — not the nails. His passion fueled His endurance of pain knowing the freedom to be produced in our lives.
The joy of victory over sin. He gave His life a ransom for many. The most worthy of living ,in whom the Pilate found no guilt, poured out His life to death _ that we might be saved. Because of His blood, we have been set free. By His bruises we are made well.
Jesus’ sacrifice has made us, now, righteous. And since He’ll love us forever, and forever means a long time; no matter what wrong we do, we are righteous in God’s eye and are prisoners of hope. His accomplishments are credited to our account.
So therefore, when a man comes to the end of himself. When you have no more strength of your own, then you’re in a position to be saved. That is when God comes in and gives you Grace. Jesus gives generously to all without finding blemish.
What an amazing Grace! An indescribable love! So overwhelming.
