What a bitter-sweet weekend.
As I am growing in my faith, I am beginning to truly realize what Jesus did for me/us. But sometimes wonder why...for me? Do I really deserve something so great?
It's easy to say he died for us. But really "died"?
He was severely beaten, made to wear a crown of thorns, carry the very cross that he would hang from, and then NAILED to it.
I have worked in construction and have stepped on a nail before and it does not feel good, to say the least. Imagine........that nail stays in your foot, plus there is a nail in each of your hands.
The truly amazing thing is, Jesus knew what was going to happen and suffered this horrific pain and death for ME and YOU.
