Christ Suffered For Our Sins

 

1 Peter 2:24

He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness, by his wounds you have been healed.

What of Today’s Verse…

He bore our sins. He didn’t just carry them, he suffered the penalty we deserved. His anguish was our healing, his suffering our righteousness. How can we ever think of going back to sin after he suffered so much to bear their penalty?

Let us Pray:

Holy God, how you could stand to see your precious Son under the weight of my sin, all sin, I will never understand. Thank you for such a great love and for being so great a God. There is none who can be compared to you, O God. Your greatness is beyond imagining and your love beyond my dreams. I will live this day to your glory through him who bore my sin so I could be your child. Amen.

Words of Wisdom

Look up and smile

The more you look up, the more things will be looking up.

The more positive you are in a physical sense, the more positive your whole life is. Your mind and your body work together. It is difficult to be mentally and spiritually joyful and positive when you have a negative, lifeless physiology.

Conversely, when you are smiling, standing or sitting up straight, looking upward, and breathing deeply, it is almost impossible to sustain negative attitude. Act positive physically and you will be positive. You’ll see the good things around you. You’ll interact better with other people.

Think about it, who would you rather deal with, someone who is slumped over and looking down at the ground, or someone who is sincerely cheerful, smiling, bright eyed, looking up, and full of positive energy.

Have you ever looked at someone and known immediately that they were depressed? Of course. It is easy to spot. So, if you don’t want to be depressed, don’t act depressed. It works every time. If you want to be joyful, act joyfully.

Try it right now. Experience the contrast for yourself. First, look down, slump over, put a scowl on your face, and say “things are terrible.” That feels awful, doesn’t it? Now, sit up, look upward, put a big smile on your face and say with excitement and passion “this is a great day and I feel fantastic.” Notice how much better you feel? It really works.

Sit up straight, throw your shoulders back, take a deep breath, look up — live your life with energy, passion, and joy.
