I just watched Passion of the Christ with my parents tonight. I've watched it several times, but I am so amazed at how much Jesus went through to save us. And even if I was the only sinner in the world, He would still save us. I don't understand how someone could resist Christ's willingness to suffer for their sins. I don't understand WHY Christ would suffer for MY sins. I have done NOTHING to deserve His love and forgiveness. Sure I am nice some of the time, and go to church most of the time, but inside my very core is wickedness that is not worthy of anyone's blood being shed for me. My thoughts are evil. Why would Jesus save me? Why? Oh man h0w I love Him. I stop and think sometimes who, what, and where I would be if I didn't have Jesus. The very thought brings tears to my eyes and an extreme gratefullness that I cannot explain takes over me. Oh how I love Him. Today, two thousand years ago, he died for me. For you. For all of humanity. And why? Because
for God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whosoever believes in Him will not perish but have everlasting life.John 3:16
He did it because He LOVED ME. WOW.
After I saw the movie I told my parents I want to see Jesus. I can't wait until I can be forever at peace in the presence of my Savior.
