Open the Grace {Day Thirty-Nine} 40 Gifts for 40 Days

Good Friday // The Road to Calvary & Christ’s Crucifixion

“It was now about noon, and darkness came over the whole land until three in the afternoon, for the sun stopped shining. And the curtain of the temple was torn in two. Jesus called out with a loud voice, “Father, into your hands I commit my spirit.” When he had said this, he breathed his last.” —Luke‬ ‭23:44-46‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Today’s Gift of Grace // It is Finished.

Open the Grace {Day Thirty-Nine} 40 Gifts for 40 Days

“After this, Jesus, knowing that all things were now accomplished, that the Scripture might be fulfilled, said, “I thirst!” Now a vessel full of sour wine was sitting there; and they filled a sponge with sour wine, put it on hyssop, and put it to His mouth. So when Jesus had received the sour wine,

He said, “It is finished!” And bowing His head, He gave up His spirit.”

John‬ ‭19:28-30‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Jesus, we remember Your suffering,

The price You paid so dearly with Your blood.

We can never thank You enough,

For all that You are,

For all that You’ve done,

Forever.

We worship and adore You,

Grateful for the most precious gift,

The greatest cost,

So we could spend eternity with You.

Alleluia.

The highest act of love is the giving of the best gift, and, if necessary, at the greatest cost, to the least deserving. That’s what God did. At the loss of His Son’s life to the totally undeserving, God gave the best gift – the display of the glory of Christ who is the image of God.

John Piper
