God, Your love for me amazes me. I can never imagine the pain Jesus must have felt as you turned your face away from him. I can’t imagine what it would feel like to lose a love that you had known for all of eternity. Oh how great is your plan of salvation! My own sin and your love held Jesus on the cross. Forgive me for putting the nails through his hands. Oh God, your son’s death brings me life. Let me always praise you for your glorious sacrifice. You are my pride, my joy and my love. You have been my help in the past, and you are my hope for the future!

1 John: 4:10 This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins
