John Chapter 12 Verse 32     “And I, if I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all men to Myself.”                (NASB)

When I was a young child I remember seeing religious movies about the life of Christ and His crucifixion.  My grandmother and I would both be crying, yet we did not understand why we were crying.  We knew that Jesus was God and yes, all His miracles proved that, but it was the cross that got to us each time.    (You see I did not have a Bible until I was much older, so the movie of Jesus’ life was all that I knew about Jesus.)

BUT . . . It was the cross!   That wonderful cross!   I never understood why Jesus had to die on that cross until I was way into my adulthood.  (The only movie that gave a glimpse of His suffering on and before the cross was the Passion of the Christ.)  In fact, the Scriptures are the only accurate account of how our LORD suffered.

We can never get rid of our sin or anyone else’s sin for that matter.   There is nothing we can do to pay the penalty of it.  ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!  All have sinned and fall short of the glory of GOD. Jesus’ death and shed blood was what it cost to pay the debt of sin.   Jesus did what nobody else could do.   He is the perfect one who took the punishment our sins deserved.  Put your faith, trust and hope in JESUS today – HE alone is the Savior that gave HIS life for yours.

If you have never received HIS forgiveness, let today be the day you cry out to JESUS and ask for Him to be LORD of your life.   No matter what you have done, no matter how you feel, no matter what has happened in your past, know that JESUS loves you and gave HIS life for you.   There is room at the cross for you, today!

“But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name.”   John 1:12 (NASB)
