Your Supreme Sacrifice

Dear God,

I bow my head before You, Lord Jesus. Because You are sinless, but You took on my sins and that of the whole world, and I cannot think of the right words to thank You enough for Your supreme sacrifice.

This afternoon, DS, DD, and I talked about heaven, and how that place is -- it's purity, beauty, and perfection. We talked about how You were a willing servant to leave Your throne in heaven, come to Earth, and suffer unspeakable hardship -- and even more -- so that we all would have a way to spend eternity with You. Nothing else could be more beautiful and perfect than that act of love from You.

As for myself, Lord, I don't know if I will ever understand fully why You made that supreme sacrifice. I am unworthy of it, I know. But from my innermost being, I want to sing and shout praises to You, and to tell the whole world what You did for all of us.

He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins,
and not only for ours
but also for the sins of the whole world.
1 John 2:2
