Today's Word: Romans 5:8

Once again, it's Holy Week! For some of us, it's the perfect time for a summer getaway. For others, it's the best opportunity to reflect on what God has done for us - He gave us Jesus, to die on the cross in order to save us from eternal condemnation. While setting our minds on Jesus -- pondering about His death on the cross -- is the best thing to do, true followers of the Lord should do this all year round and not just 
on Maundy Thursday and Good Friday. Come to think of it, 
it's the greatest love story ever told!
 For who among us would be willing to give up life for someone who does us wrong, who hurts, insults, and humiliates us? But that was exactly what Jesus did for us humans! During the hours leading to His death. He was mocked, insulted, hurt, yet He endured everything to the point of death, knowing His sacrifice would mean salvation for us. What great, unequalled love! 
Today, ponder on Jesus' sacrifice on the cross and God's immense and immeasurable love for you. Give back to Jesus by accepting Him as your Lord and Savior. He deserves all your love and praise for what He has done! 
Have a blessed Holy Week.
