It was Him or us

Earlier today on Bellshill Salvation Army Band’s Facebook page I shared some devotions. I’d like to share those devotions with you tonight.

Imagine someone you love is in a dangerous life-threatening position, and the only way to save them, is by putting your life on the line instead of theirs – Would you do it?

Giving your life to save the life of someone you love, would be the ultimate sacrifice any one of us could ever give. Well that’s what Jesus did, He gave the ultimate sacrifice for us when He died for us.

The greatest love you can have for your friends is to give your life for them.

John 15:13 (Good News Translation)

I cannot imagine how Jesus must have felt knowing he was going to die an agonising death, alone, on a cross, at Calvary. I wonder, would you have swapped paces with Him?

Would you take the place of this man?
Would you take the nails from his hands?
Would you take the place of this man?
Would you take the nails from his hands?
