Heavenly Father, as I contemplate those who were implicated in the terrible and unjust treatment of the Lord Jesus Christ, may I not be one who carelessly points an accusing finger at those who condemned Him, knowing that I am also to blame - for while I was a still a sinner, Christ died for my sins so that by His grace through faith, I might be saved from eternal condemnation. He is indeed worthy of all praise and glory. Thank You in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Heavenly Father, the more I think about the cross the more I begin to understand the immensity of what the Lord Jesus did for me and for the whole world. Thank You that I have come to an understanding of Who Jesus is and what He has done for me so that by faith in Him I am free from all condemnation.. forgiven of my sins and eternally secure in Christ. May I never ever forget what Jesus has done for me through time and into eternity - in Jesus name I pray. AMEN.
Loving Father, as I see the tender compassion the Lord Jesus had toward His mother as He died on the Cross to save my soul, I want to thank You that You also care about every aspect of my life and those for whom I am responsible. Help me to look to Jesus so that as I gaze into His lovely face, I will see the same tender compassion and love. Thank You, in Jesus' name, AMEN.
Loving Father, it amazes me that Your Son would even call out for a drink so that all Scripture concerning my salvation was made secure in Him. There are times when I foolishly doubt Your Word, but You are a faithful God whose Word can be trusted in every detail. Teach me more of You, for I want to know You better and love You more. In Jesus' name I pray, AMEN.
Thank You, Lord Jesus, for Your finished work on Calvary and for all You suffered for me. All was accomplished so that I could live forever with You in heaven and not fear any condemnation because I am in You. Praise Your holy name, AMEN.
