2015-03-21 - Sacrifices
Romans 8:32 "He who did not spare His own Son, but gave Him up for us all--how will He not also, along with Him, graciously give us all things?"
During the period of Lent, we frequently give up something that we enjoy - such as chocolate, sweets or meat. We make a temporary sacrifice, for a short period of time. But God made a huge sacrifice. He gave up Jesus, His only Son. Jesus was given for our sins, and died in our place. He was the Ultimate Sacrifice.
As Easter approaches, we can take time to think of God's sacrifice of His Son Jesus. We also think of the sacrifice that Jesus made by dying on the Cross for our sins. How will you respond to Jesus' sacrifice?
