Tell yourself the reason for the Cross today. Look ahead four weeks to the Easter weekend and explain to yourself the reason that Christ is sacrificed. It certainly isn’t rooted in anything we have or can do. It’s not that we are worthy of that sacrifice.
It is grace, pure and simple.
Now I know that the Lord saves his anointed;
he answers him from his holy heaven with the saving power of his right hand. (Psalm 20:6)
We place our trust in this grace and it induces an increase in our humility. We are reduced as the magnitude of this gift is realized. We are drawn closer to the giver of the gift.
Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the Lord our God. (v7)
Grace and peace to you…
