"Yet to all who did receive
him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to
become children of God John 1:12"
When I was twelve years old our family
moved to a town in the desert. After gym classes in the hot
air at my new school, we rushed for the drinking fountain.
Being skinny and young for my grade, I sometimes got pushed
out of the way while waiting in line. One day my friend Joe,
who was big and strong for his age, saw this happening. He
stepped in and stuck out a strong arm to clear my way.
“Hey!” he exclaimed, “You let Daniel get a drink first!” I
never had trouble at the drinking fountain again.
Jesus understood what it was like to face the ultimate
unkindness of others. The Bible tells us, “He was despised
and rejected by mankind” (Isa. 53:3). But Jesus was not just
a victim, He also became our advocate. By giving His life,
Jesus opened a “new and living way” for us to enter into a
relationship with God (Heb. 10:20). He did for us what we
could never do for ourselves, offering us the free gift of
salvation when we repent of our sins and trust in Him.
Jesus is the best friend we could ever have. He said,
“Whoever comes to me I will never drive away” (John 6:37).
Others may hold us at arm’s length or even push us away, but
God has opened His arms to us through the cross. How strong
is our Savior!
Love’s redeeming work is done, fought the fight, the
battle won. Death in vain forbids him rise; Christ has
opened paradise. Charles Wesley
God’s free gift to us cost Him dearly.
Dear Lord, You bless me in
more ways than I can count. Thank You for Your love for
When you think of all that’s good, give thanks to God.
