Think deeply and often about Jesus death on the cross.

When we understand the significance of Jesus’ death on the cross, we will grow in our appreciation of the grace of God. Jesus experianced a brutal death on our behalf. In addition to the great physical pain, he experianced the guilt of our sin, the wrath of God,and separation from God-all of which he had never before known. Motivated by a deep love for us all, he bore the consequences of our sin. We need to read aboutJesus’ death on the cross. We need to faithfully remind ourselves by thinking and praying about it. We must make sure that we do not grow so familiar with the cross that we forget that it was the moment when Christ bridged the huge divide between God and us. What amazing love! What amazing grace!
