We remember today, the pain and suffering of the cross, and all that Jesus was willing to endure, so we could be set free. He paid the price, such a great sacrifice, to offer us the gift of eternal life.
Lord, help us never to take for granted this huge gift of love. Help us to be reminded of the cost of it all. Forgive us for being too busy, or distracted by other things, for not fully recognizing what You have freely given, what You have done for us.
Thank You, Lord, that by Your wounds we are healed. Thank You that because of Your huge sacrifice, we can live free. Sin and death have been conquered and Your Power is everlasting.
Thank You that we can say with assurance, “It is finished…” Death has lost its sting. We praise You for making all things new.
In Jesus’ name we pray, Amen.
