He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed.
1 Peter 2:24
Three hours nailed to a piece of wood…that’s all it took after the beatings. For all the grace that you’ve experienced, this act of love should fill your heart with great sorrow and great joy all at the same time. Set your goal as heaven and you will do Christ’s work here on earth.
Lord, thank you for taking my stripes and my punishment. Thank you for seeking out my heart and embracing me with all my faults. Help me to serve you mightily.
