On the Mount of Olives, Jesus prayed to His Father. ."Father if you are willing, remove this cup from me. Nevertheless, not my will but yours, be done Luke 22:41. He was asking God, His Father to spare his life, praying so earnestly that his sweat became like great drops of blood falling down to the ground. I can hardly even imagine that, can you??
Today, I'm thankful for Jesus' great sacrifice.
I'm thankful that He has risen from the dead.
I'm thankful that, because of His gift, I will see Him in heaven one day.
And I'm thankful to live in a nation in which I can unashamedly call on His name. .or worship Him as I please!
Ephesians 2:8-10 For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast!! For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.
Christ our Savior has risen today!!
Happy Easter everyone!!
