Oh sweet Jesus, You did so much for me. But You didn’t have to.
You could have said, “No, I won’t.” You could have saved Yourself. But instead, You saved me.
You could have went on being God’s Son, but instead, You brought me into the presence of Your Father where I could be His child too.
Nothing could have been harder to do than to receive the whip and hang upon that cross from my sins.
So easy for me, so hard for You.
The only explanation is love.
Thank You Jesus, for letting this tired, weary and wretched soul, rise up clean and glorious with You, only You.
In Jesus name, amen.
