The blood on our hands

I couldn’t tell you the number of times I have heard or said this sentence Slide1

“Jesus died for you”

Yesterday I realised how inadequate it is.

Jesus didn’t just die for you. He was tortured for you. He was humiliated for you. He was treated like the world’s enemy for you.

Jesus didn’t just die for you. He died because of you. He was tortured by you. He was humiliated by you. He was treated like the world’s enemy by you.

And as we got his blood on our hands, he prayed for us. He willingly went to the cross so that we wouldn’t have to.

That is grace. Thank you, Jesus.
