2 Corinthians 5:14-15 Scripture Meditation by Stephen Taylor

2 Corinthians 5:14-15

For Christ’s love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died. And he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again.

Mom and I watched The Passion of the Christ last night, and while watching it, I wanted to yell out for them to stop it and that Jesus was going through all of that for them!

Then I realized that at one time or another in my life, I was each and every person in that movie! And then I cried.

I cried because of what He went through.

I cried because I don’t appreciate it as much as I should.

I cried because I take my salvation for granted at times.

And I cried because I know in my heart that He would have done it again if it meant saving us! 

Salvation may be free to us who believe, but it came at a huge cost to our King!! Thankfully, that wasn’t the end of His story but the beginning of our life with Him! Jesus is alive and well and wants that close relationship with me and you!! Just being good isn’t good enough for me anymore. It’s time to step it up!!

Let’s give glory, honor, and praise to our risen King and the only one that could save our souls!!!! I Praise God. I love you all. Thank you, Jesus!!!!!
