“He himself bore our sins in his body on the cross, so that, free from sins, we might live for righteousness...” 1 Peter 2:24
As I gaze at the cross of Jesus, what personal significance do I find in this unparalleled act of love?
My Saviour, thank you for conquering evil, for redeeming me and all humanity with your most precious blood. Amen.
