To Him, we were worth it.

“And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.” Philippians 2:8

Jesus could have numbed Himself from all of the pain He felt as the Roman soldiers ripped through His flesh while beating Him almost to the point of death. He could have become angry at everyone and sent a legion of angels to destroy them all, but instead, He said, “Father forgive them for they know not what they do.” He could have died after only six seconds on the cross. Instead, He allowed Himself to suffer for six grueling hours. He allowed Himself to feel every lash, every thorn crushing down into His skull, and the nails piercing through. He even felt the wood rubbing against his torn skin as He carried it on His shoulders. He allowed Himself to be mocked and spit on. He allowed His flesh to be broken and beaten until He was unrecognizable. He allowed it all. And why? Because He loves you, and He loves me. To Him, we were worth it. His death removed our sin and our shame and made it possible for all to be saved.

On this Good Friday, let’s pause and think of the death of Jesus. Let’s not move so quickly to celebrating His resurrection. Let your heart accept His death and the wonderful significance of it.

Prayer: Lord, you didn’t have to do it, but I’m so glad you did. Thank you for your sacrifice for me. When I feel unworthy, when I feel unforgivable, when I feel ashamed and like no one loves me, help me to remember your sacrifice. I receive your saving grace all over again. I receive your love and forgiveness. Help me tell others about you more and more. With all my heart, I thank you Lord!
