Oh Lord, I am so grateful for the cross. I can never give You enough thanks and praise for what You have done for mankind. We were all lost without You and in need of a Savior, until the day that You stepped into this world to save us all. Even putting upon Yourself flesh was a sign of Your great humility and love for mankind. While on earth, You taught us how to live our lives and brought hope to everyone that listened. You even suffered by the hands of the people freely because You love all people and wish that they would repent and be drawn unto You for salvation. There is surely no one like You, God. My heart is filled with peace just to know what You did for me. I can’t even imagine the suffering You went through while You were raised up on the cross. This brings tears to my eyes just thinking about this. I surely did not deserve Your compassion, but You suffered that I might have mercy. In my sins, I had no way out of my bondage and because You bled and died, I have new life. Thank You for hearing my cries and seeing me in all my sins and still forgiving me. I needed a way out of all my shame and You took it upon Yourself that I could be free. Wow, I am so grateful God. Thank You Lord. Surely, I am sanctified and washed because You loved us first and want everyone to experience eternal life. This I know Lord, for You are my King and I am born again because of what You did for me. I will forever love You and trust in You all my days. Amen.
Hebrews 2:10-13 (KJV)
10 For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.
11 For both he that sanctifieth and they who are sanctified are all of one: for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren,
12 Saying, I will declare thy name unto my brethren, in the midst of the church will I sing praise unto thee.
13 And again, I will put my trust in him. And again, Behold I and the children which God hath given me.
Hebrews 2:1 (KJV)
1 Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip.
Jesus suffered for our sins on the cross that we might be sanctified through His blood. Those that receive Him are washed clean and forgiven.
