As today is Good Friday I feel this post should be about the amazing sacrifice Jesus made for us. I just don’t know where to begin. My mind cannot comprehend the vastness of such love.
We all believe we would give our lives for our loved ones but imagine giving up your life for someone who hated you, who tormented you, who mocked you.

He didn’t and this is the bit that leaves my heart raising, that drags me to my knees. He just loved us more.
Luke 23:34 (NLT)

Mark 14:24-25 (NLT)
