Acknowledging the Sacrifice

There is no greater demonstration of God’s passion for his people than the pain of the crucifixion. In a heroic display of love, Jesus allowed the betrayal that placed Him into the hands of those who wanted Him dead.


After he faced a trial where He was beaten and mocked, Jesus was handed over to the brutal power of Rome to be hung on a cross until he was dead—the price to be paid for our sins. “Like a lamb led to the slaughter,” He went to His death, taking the sins of the world upon Himself.

Scripture reveals that God longs for people. Upon the cross, Jesus gave his life so you would know God’s love. The Bible says in Romans 5:8,

But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Have you personally experienced God’s love? Have you acknowledged the agonizing and ultimate sacrifice that Christ made on your behalf?
