Day 105

JESUS THE CRUCIFIED

"You are looking for Jesus the Nazarene,
who was crucified."

MARK 16:6John 17:4


FROM THE FATHER'S HEART
My child, I know life is hard. I've seen you suffering. I've bottled all your tears. Remember that I know something about pain. I know about injustice, rejection, persecution, and death. My enemies crucified Me because they didn't understand what you know - that my death gave you life.

A GRATEFUL RESPONSE
I should have died in your place, Lord. With every blow of the hammer, with every spike driven into Your hands, You took my sin and my inadequacies. You spilled Your blood. You gave Your life for me, Lord Jesus, the crucified, and I owe You a lifetime of gratitude.

SIMPLE TRUTH

Whatever the place or time of day, Jesus is still the only way.
