He Chose You

For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame… Hebrews 12:2

Jesus thought of you and me when he chose to lay his life down.

He thought of being with us as a joy. That’s how much he loves us. He didn’t want to be without us. So he endured the humiliation, torture and devastation of being nailed to a cross.

But that wasn’t the end of it.

He overcame death and rose again. Not only so he could be alive, but so we could live forever with him. Forever alive. Forever without tears, sorrow or pain. Because he took all of that on him for our sake.

Wow.

Happy Easter.
