1 John 4:10

In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.

 

Thought for Today

Did you ever get into trouble for something and have your best friend step in and cover for you? Best friends take care of each other like that. Jesus did this very thing for you. When you were in trouble because of the things that you did that were wrong or the things that you should have done that you selfishly avoided Jesus came and covered for you. He said to His Heavenly Father, “I did that. Punish me.” And He went all the way to the cross where He took the punishment that your wickedness and selfishness deserved. Now the Father looks on you as the perfect son or daughter. He does not think you have ever done anything wrong because every time Jesus stepped in and covered for you. If that is not true friendship I do not know what is!

 

Prayer

Jesus, thank you for stepping in for me and taking my punishment upon Yourself. You are truly the best friend I will ever have. Help me act in ways that show how much I appreciate Your friendship. Amen.
