Gratituesday: The Cross

With everything that goes on from day in and day out, the only thing that remains the same is God's love for me. He sent His One and Only Son, Jesus, to die on the cross for my sins; for my salvation; and I am so undeserving and so unworthy of this gift! But, God still sacrificed His Son, Jesus, for you and for me! I can't think of a greater gift!

I love knowing that because of God's unselfishness and unconditional love for me, I can come to the feet of the cross and lay all my burden, all my hurts and fears there, and Jesus will take care of it all!
“Praise be to the Lord, to God our Savior, who daily bears our burdens” (Psalm 68:19).

“Come to me all you who are weary and burdened and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28).

I can come, asking for forgiveness of my wrongdoings and my slate will be wiped clean! He forgives us and then forgets it even happened!

“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” (1 John 1:9)

All He is asking from us in return is a love relationship with Him. To give our whole heart, mind, body, and spirit, to Him. He loves us so much. Jesus wants us to talk to Him daily, hourly, every chance we get! He wants us to come to Him when we are happy or sad or if we just want to "chit-chat"! He doesn't care. He just loves spending time with us!
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away, behold, all things have become new.” (2 Corinthians 5:17)

Today, I am thankful for the cross and my freedom from sin in Christ Jesus! I am thankful for my love relationship with my Heavenly Father and His Son! I am thankful for the gift of His Word and how, by reading it, I am growing closer to Him! I am thankful for all He has done for me in my life and all that I know He is going to continue to do!

I ask that if you are reading this and have not yet asked Jesus Christ to be your Lord and Saviour, would you please consider doing that now by praying this prayer:

"Lord Jesus, I believe you are the Son of God. Thank you for dying on the cross for my sins. Please forgive my sins and give me the gift of eternal life. I ask you in to my life and heart to be my Lord and Savior. I want to serve you always."

If you prayed that prayer for the very first time I congratulate you and welcome you into the Family of Christ!{Would you please contact me at the email address given above so that I may pray for you!} You are going to be amazed at all the wonderful things our Heavenly Father has in store for you!

{Please stop by Heavenly Homemakers to read what others are Grateful/thankful for on this Gratituesday!}

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. ~ John 3:16
