It was my sin...

"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life."
John 3:16

It was my sin that held him there... and now he's holding me...

When I realize that it was MY sin that put Christ on that cruel Cross - it breaks my heart. He died for even me. He would have died for ONLY me.

We indeed serve a mighty and risen Savior!!

Thank you Lauren for this great post.

Amen! That was our sin and He didn't have to die for us, yet HE CHOSE to love us enough to do so! I don't think my mind will truly ever comprehend the amazing love our Heavenly Father has for us! I just know I will be forever grateful that He knows the depths of my evil heart and still loves me! oh gosh, now i'm crying again...haha

I have loved that picture for years. I remember when it came out I worked at a Christian bookstore and people would come in all the time looking for it. It has meant so much to many.

And your last statement? Brought tears to my eyes.

Beautiful.

This is my husbands favorite picture. He leaves it on his dash of his car to always be reminded. I think of him when I see this everytime. How blessed I am to have a man that loves Jesus, you too. Thank God!!
