Jesus Died For Me Pt 1
I intended to just write one or two posts on this but it has expanded to a small series of blogs, today I am posting one and two hoping to post another tomorrow So without farther ado- here's part 1
1 Peter 2 :24 His wounds became your healing. (MSG)
The AMP, NIV and NLT say : By His wounds you have been healed.
This was the last thing I read last night before I went to sleep to rest for the day and from the day. As I pondered that very awesome passage I was stopped in my tracks. Who do I know in my life that loved me that much to take on every single thing I ever did so that I can continue to live? Who in my life would take every hit, every stab, every hurt. every punishment, I was supposed to receive so that I would live.
There is no one who can even come close- except Jesus. Jesus took every hit every word every abuse so we can get back on the right side of God our creator. Every time I see the reenactment of Christ's Crucifixion, I break down and cry. To see a man that beaten and bloodied walking those final steps to die for me – there are no words really. Except Thank you Jesus . Thank you.
Father thank you for sending your son Jesus to take on my punishment. Thank you Father for loving me so very much for all you have given me. I am at awe this morning as the words By his wounds I am healed. Forgive me for the sins I made both known and not know. Help me become the child you want me to be so that I can praise your mighty name for as long as I am here. Guide me and show me where you want me to go and I will go. My life may be hard but you are with me For with you I am not alone you are by my side.
Thank you Father Thank you.
( author note tomorrow there will be a part two for this.) But all I could do is thank Jesus today and remind myself there is no one in my life who has loved me or will ever love me as much as Jesus. )
