Blog Post - Jesus Gave Himself for Us

Updated: May 10

Jesus Gave It All: It is easy to blame the Jewish leaders and the Romans when it comes to Jesus' crucifixion. But this course was set long before this moment. Jesus' crucifixion was part of God's plan to rid the world of sin. All sin. Forever. For this there needed to be a sacrifice. Someone who had no sin would have to take the punishment for those who had sinned and those who would sin in the future.

You and I are as much to blame for Jesus' death as anyone who crucified him. Jesus chose to do this; no one forced him. He did what only he could do to save us.

We were dead in our sin. We were separated from God. There was nothing we could do to save ourselves. But Jesus, who had no sin, took our punishment on himself so we could live. He did so at the cost of his own life.

Jesus died on a cross and was placed in a tomb. But he didn't stay there. Make sure and read Day 5 to find out what happened next!

John 15:13 No one has greater love than this: to lay down his life for his friends.

Pray God, thank you for sending your son to save us from our sins. Forgive me of the sins I have committed. Help me to remember the sacrifice you have made for me. Amen.
