What If Jesus Didn't Die for Us?
Happy Saturday Lovebugs :)
Tomorrow we will celebrate the Resurrection of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ! Just think about all of the things that Jesus had to endure. Being beaten, spat on, lied on, persecuted, the list goes on and on. And to think, He went through all of this for you and me! Now that's love!
As I was preparing to write this post today, an interesting question came to mind: What if Jesus didn't die for us? What if He chose not to go through with being crucified? What if He just said, nope God, I'm not doing it! What type of position would that leave you and I in??
Would that mean an instant, one way ticket to hell? Would that mean going back to sacrificing hundreds of animals to atone our hundreds of sins? Would that mean one strike and we're out?
I cringe when I even ponder what life would be like if Jesus hadn't sacrificed Himself. I'm SO thankful for His grace, love and mercy. I'm SO grateful that His blood washes away my sins when I seek forgiveness. I'm SO appreciative that He intercedes on our behalf. Jesus is TOO incredible for what He did for us. And I'm so thankful that neither you or I will have to experience what would happen if He decided not to die so that we could live!
So, take some time and really meditate on what this season is all about. Really try to grasp the magnitude of what Jesus did. Allow what He did to penetrate your heart to the point where it changes your life. Be excited, humbled and in awe about what Jesus did FOR YOU! Because at the end of the day, He didn't have to...
I love You Jesus!
