SHORT THOUGHTS: This is a monumental day for Christians. It is the day that Jesus, the Son of God and our Savior took and paid the full penalty for all of our past, present and future sins. It is the day He bore the sin of the whole world. On this day, Jesus paid the price for you and me...He bridged the gap created by sin between us and our Father. He made a way for everyone to come to the Father...not by their own works and deeds...but by His works, deeds and ultimate sacrifice. There is nothing we can do to earn it, it is simply, "A GIFT" to which we say yes or we say no, like the two thieves who were crucified with Jesus.
Listen to the words to this song I wrote long ago in response to such a great gift. As you listen, think about all that has been done for you out of love and consider giving all back to the One who loves you more than you can imagine.
