"Then Jesus, calling out with a loud voice, said, 'Father, into your hands I commit my spirit!' And having said this He breathed His last." -Luke 23:46 (ESV)
Jesus suffered so we don't have to endure being condemned for eternity. Jesus suffered, but He conquered death, so we, too, can live. When we reach the point that we feel like crying out in pain and emptiness, we can have faith that Jesus has already cried out for us. Once we realize and embrace Jesus' sacrifice for us, we can cry out with high praise and thanksgiving to God the Father and Jesus the Son!
Embrace the sacrifice of Jesus for you and call out in praise and thanksgiving!
Thank You for sending Jesus. As I reflect on His pain and suffering, I praise You for Your plan of salvation for me. Forgive me, protect me, and use me for Your purposes. Through Jesus, my Savior, I pray, amen.
