But it was the Lord’s good plan to crush Him and fill him with grief. Yet when his life is made an offering for sin, he will have a multitude of children, many heirs. He will enjoy a long life, ad the Lord’s plan will prosper in His hands.
Jesus went through incredible physical and emotional pain leading up to and during his crucifixion. And on the other side of that pain and anguish the way was opened for everyone who wanted, to turn from their sins, receive complete forgiveness and be welcomed into God’s family forever.
Jesus thank you for enduring the pain and shame of the cross for our sins and for making a way for us to be forgiven and live passionate and purposeful lives. Thank you that our hope is not just in this life but also in the one to come.
