At the cross, a great trade was made for those who believed, our brokenness and sin in exchange for salvation and eternity with God. The Bible says that it is by God’s grace that we are saved, through faith in Jesus Christ, and that everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved!
We have been made holy through this sacrifice, and as a result, our hearts can reflect that love, return it to God, and overflow to those around us. You are saved, healed, and delivered from the grip of sin through your faith in God, which means that your life can be filled to the brim with all of the benefits of your relationship with Him. Living for Christ and allowing that love to flow to the world is ultimately what God would have us give back to Him. The same grace that was given to us is freely available to the rest of the world, and the greatest gift we can give the Father is to live a life that draws others to His love.
Father God, thank You for the gift of Your son, Jesus Christ. Help me to recognize and understand the magnitude of the sacrifice that Jesus made for me on the cross. Jesus, help me to become the person that You paid such a huge price for me to become. Let my heart be always looking to You as the source of my joy, and help me live each day for You. Please bring opportunities for me to make a difference in the lives of others by sharing Your truth with those around me. Help me look to You for strength and peace so I can overcome sin and become a powerful person for You. I give my life completely to You, today and every day!
