I have two grown children. I love them very much! When they hurt, I hurt. When they struggle with problems, I feel their frustration.
I have often wondered what God was thinking as He watched His Son, Jesus, die on the cross. I don’t think that we can ever imagine how terrible God felt. He heard the insults that people spoke against Jesus. He felt the nails as they went into Jesus’ hands and feet. But God was still willing to experience this pain for us!
Verse 10 of our Bible Reading for today reminds us about God’s love for His children. “God — the one who made all things and for whose glory all things exist — wanted many people to be his children and share his glory. So he did what he needed to do…He made Jesus a perfect Savior through his suffering.”
As you celebrate Jesus’ resurrection today, think about how much God loves you. Thank Him for sending Jesus to die!
