The Ultimate Sacrifice

The sacrifice that Christ made for my sins is unimaginable to me in it's horror.
I am not deserving of His mercy and goodness, but even if I was the only person God ever put on this earth, Christ still would have died on the cross for just me.

His love for me knows no bounds.
I am humbled every time I think about His mercy.
I do not deserve the love and forgiveness that He bestows on me, but He offers it to me anyway!

Salvation is not something that I can earn. It is a gift. The only thing I can do is choose to accept the gift, and choose to live a life that honors the Gift-Giver.

Corinthians 6:19-20
Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body.

"Love so amazing, so divine, demands my soul, my life, my all."-Issac Watts

You did it all for me
After You counted the cost
You took my shame, my blame
On my cross

I am humbled by Your love for me, Lord.

If you would like to learn more about salvation through Jesus Christ, Pastor Paul Sheppard has a sermon called The Miracle of Salvation. Let his words about God and His love for you sink deep into your heart. God loves you!

I will always remember the day my dh and I went to see "The Passion" I was so overwhelmed and drained. To see,even in just a movie,the most unbearable pain and sacrifice. How could I not accept that kind of love?
Oh what a wonderful Savior have I!!!
Thanks Amy : )
I hope you and your precious family have a great Easter weekend

hi amy, thanks for stopping by my project365.

pictures disappearing, you say? i have not had any issues. who are you using to host your photos? i am using photobucket and am very happy with them. you aren't shuffling your photos after you post an entry, are you? maybe putting them into different albums? i know that can break links. shoot me an email at bgmdesign at austin dot rr dot com and we'll see if we can't figure it out.

oh Amy, I had to stop watching the video, I have tears on my cheeks and I feel so unworthy to live another day. I never saw that movie but Pete did, I think I will go rent it but I've only seen a couple of minutes and I can't breathe. But oh how amazing to know how much my God loves me and was beaten, whipped and broken all for me. I love you!

I am always humbled when I think of his sacfifice on my behalf. As my gift to him, I try to live so that he need not have suffered more than he had to for me. But I'm only human.
