I am amazed at all that Jesus went through as He was arrested, beaten, mocked, and crucified. The pain that He endured as each stake was driven into His beaten down body. For Him to hang on that cross listening as each vicious word was slung at Him, only to remain silent. Not once did He respond in anger. Not once did call upon the Father to bring down His wrath upon those soldiers as they ridiculed Him. All that Christ went through, submitting Himself to the Father’s plan.
I am amazed that He went through all of this for ALL of humanity. Those that loved Him and those that hated Him. Those who worshipped Him and those that rejected Him. For every man, woman, and child – Jesus gave of Himself.
I am amazed that Jesus took the weight of every person’s sin to the cross. He gave. He sacrificed. He endured.
I am amazed that Jesus went through all of this for me. Thank Jesus for your sacrifice, for your gift, and for your love.
