Day 39, or From His Side
On the darkest of days, in the most desperate of moments, when it seemed the light of the world had been extinguished, in fact it was our very salvation being brought about. So deep was Jesus’ love and mercy for us, that even from the grave, He gave of Himself so that we might be redeemed.
Though we couldn’t see or understand how the story could go this way, how all our hopes could end in tragedy, God, in His infinite wisdom, was crafting a far more glorious destiny than we could ever have imagined for ourselves. Out of the sin and pride of man, which caused our death and His, He showed us the way to everlasting life, so that we might strive to gain eternity with Him, without ever straying from His side.
My prayer for today:
Oh blood and water, which gushed forth from the heart of Jesus as a fountain of mercy for us, I trust in you!
