The Love that was manifested through the Ultimate Sacrifice.

Bible says, But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed.” (Isaiah 53:5). The love of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ was demonstrated on the cross. He took up the cross and sacrificed Himself to make a way for all the sinners to repent and inherit the Kingdom of God. He was crushed and punished for our transgressions. When you are sailing in your sickbed, just picture Jesus on His cross and say “Lord You gave Yourself to be crushed on the cross for my transgressions; heal the sickness that is crushing me. Heal me through Your word that assures that I am healed through Your stripes.” And as you humble yourself and pray this prayer, surely you will receive your healing. Assuredly, God will manifest His love for you and immediately the strength and healing from His cross will descend upon you and heal your body and deliver you.     
 
This is what we meditate during every Good Friday. Dearly beloved, this is not for us to just meditate only on a Good Friday. We ought to meditate on His loving sacrifice each and every day and humble ourselves by kneeling down, falling at His feet and by telling Him “Lord you have sacrificed Yourself on the cross for me. I surrender myself for Your glory”. When we submit ourselves to Him, He will wipe away our tears and turn our sorrows into joy. His love will bring a complete transformation in our lives.  When we meditate on the love of Jesus that was manifested on the cross and pray in faith, God will answer all our prayers.  This is why many people during these forty days humble themselves by giving up on their desires. However many have less or no understanding to why they fast on these days. Dearly beloved, remember the sacrifice on the cross and surrender yourself completely into the hands of God. When you do that, the love that was manifested through His sacrifice on the cross will bring immense blessings in your life.
A girl was abandoned by her family due to a physical illness. She found herself stranded in a pathetic situation. Sorrow struck her as she began to worry about how she could sustain her life without any money, belongings or health.  One day as she was piously reading the Bible the above promise caught her eyes. She said to herself “why should I worry about anything when I have Jesus, who bore such punishment for my sake!” and she held on to the feet of Jesus from that day forth. Isn’t our Lord a God who answers the prayers of His children? Yes! As days went by, the Lord completely healed her sickness and she found a good job and she was raised to a higher position at work. All those who abandoned her came in search of her now. Not forsaking them for their unpleasant deeds, she showed the love of Christ and supported their needs with what she could. Yes my loving children of God, from this day on, we too must realize and display the love of Christ with others and live a life for the glory of God.
Prayer:
Loving heavenly Father, How great is Your love. Your love has no bounds. I am so privileged to have You as my Saviour. It is through Your sacrifice that I am healed. You have washed me with Your unblemished blood. Lord I have no words to thank You for the love that You have showed me. Continue to lead me through Your loving kindness. I commit myself into Thy nail pierced hand. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
