I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.
Galatians 2: 20
God loves us so much that He sent His son to die for us. There was and never
will be a greater sacrifice than this.
Jesus didn’t die because we deserved it, but because He loved each one of us so
much that He was willing to sacrifice Himself on our behalf. Romans 5:8 says,
“But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still
sinners, Christ died for us.”
Jesus Christ died on a cross so that you might have life and have it more
abundantly ( John 10:10). This was the ultimate sacrifice; someone dying so
you might live.
The story of our salvation is made all the more powerful because it was a
perfect man—God in human form—who died for the sins of us all.
Acts 4:12 says, “Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name
under heaven given to men by which we must be saved.” Only through the
sacrifice of God’s son are we saved and able to approach His presence.
