Something to Brag About!
GOD PAUSE: This morning, I read Isaiah 53, a prophecy of Jesus' death on the cross --- for you and for me. The fact was driven home to my heart once again that all Jesus did, he did for me. Verse 5 says “But He was hurt because of us. He suffered so. Our wrongdoing wounded and crushed him. He endured the breaking that made us whole. The injuries he suffered became our healing.” Every time I take Holy Communion (whether in church or at my home), I not only thank the Lord for the elements and what they mean, but I take in everything Jesus did for me on that cross. Forgiveness, healing, joy, peace, strength. No wonder Paul said “If I brag about anything, I'll brag about the cross!” Thank You, Lord.
