The Kitchen Table
“and He himself bore our sins” in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; “by his wounds you have been healed.” 1 Peter 2:24
A cross without a sacrifice is just a cross. This cross wasn’t empty. Jesus put Himself on that cross to pay for our sins that we could live. That’s what love does. Love takes up a cross and dies there for another. Love works and love wins. Love forgives, frees, and fills with hope. Remember that is what Jesus did and that is what we do too. Love goes there on its own for another. Love has bigger fish to fry and a larger life to live. It’s all made possible by the love and life laid down for us by Jesus.
