He himself bore our sins
in his body on the tree.
—1 Peter 2:24
As the two outgunned soldiers ran for cover an exploding grenade caught one in mid-stride, mangling his right leg. His cohort jumped on top of him, shielding him from gunfire with his own body. It cost him his life.
In his eulogy for his comrade, the surviving GI said, “He took a bullet for me.”
In an act of unfathomable love Jesus enlisted in your war, ran by your side, and covered you with his own body when you fell.
He took a bullet for you.
Your value is measured by
the price he paid for you.
