Our Daily Bread - No Greater Love

"To give your life so another person can live is the ultimate proof of love. During the night that Jesus was betrayed, He told His disciples of His intention to give His life in exchange for mankind. He told them: “Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends” (John 15:13). And then He set the ultimate example of self-sacrifice by going to the cross.  Have you ever given any thought to the fact that Jesus did that for you—that He died in your place? In so doing, He not only proved His love for you, but He also made it possible for you to be forgiven of your sins and to have an eternal home in heaven."   Our Daily Bread


He who gave Himself to save me,
Now will keep me to the end;
In His care securely resting
On His promise I depend. —Bosch

Today, as Christians around the world celebrate what happened on that first Good Friday, may this truly become a “Good Friday” for you, as you open your heart and life to Jesus Christ. “To all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God” (John 1:12).
Billy Graham
