I wanted to share the following excerpt from one of my favorite daily devotional books. This is from “Grace for the Moment”, by Max Lucado. (http://maxlucado.com/)
“You Were in His Prayers”
“The final prayer of Jesus was about you. His final pain was for you. His final passion was for you. Before he went to the cross, Jesus went to the garden. And when he spoke with his Father, you were in his prayers…
And God couldn’t turn his back on you. He couldn’t because he saw you, and one look at you was all it took to convince him. Right there in the middle of a world which isn’t fair. He saw you cast into a river of life you didn’t request. He saw you betrayed by those you love. He saw you with a body which gets sick and a heart which grows weak…
On the eve of the cross, Jesus made his decision. He would rather go to hell for you than go to heaven without you. ”
If that isn’t love then I don’t know what is! I hope you enjoy your weekend loving your family and friends! Thanks for reading!
