Lord, we thank You that Your Son, Jesus, went to the Cross for us. It was our sin that sent Him to the Cross. He took our sin upon Himself. He took our place. We were the ones who should have died - but He was the One who died for us. We look at ourselves, and we see nothing but bad news - "The wages of sin is death." We look at Jesus, dying on the Cross for us, and we hear the Good News of Your great love for us: "The free gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord" (Romans 6:23).
