God Loved us so much, when we were still sinners, that He decided to give up His Son so that we could be saved. Jesus Christ endured all the pain and the suffering, so that we could be redeemed from our sins. Jesus had every single person, past, present and future, in mind when He chose to make that sacrifice. This is why we are able to identify as children of God. This is why we have eternal life.
And we pray:
Dear God, I thank You for Your Son – Jesus Christ, and the fact that He is the reason I have been saved from eternal damnation. Thank You, Father, that I am justified and redeemed thanks to Your Son. Were it not for Your great act of Love, Lord, I fear to think of where I would be. Thank You, Lord, that that is a future I do not need to worry about. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
