How much does Jesus' Sacrifice on the Cross drive our daily lives?
2 Corinthians 5:15
If we value our lives, trying to enjoy it and live it as long as possible, what does it mean when someone gives up their life for us? How does it change us to know someone valued us more than their life?
Does Jesus’ sacrifice change us? Jesus, being God, became human in order to be with us. Even more, Jesus valued our lives more than his and gave it up for us. Do we understand what it means for God to value us that much?
If we grasp the enormity of Jesus’ love for us can we allow it to change us? How can we continue clinging to our self-interests when God is all giving? We must value no longer our lives but that of others and follow the path Jesus has shown us.
Let us meditate on the sacrifice Jesus made for us. On how much value Jesus sees in us personally and in all of us. Can we then begin to love others as God has loved us? Let us no longer ignore God’s love but rest in it.
