Dear Trinity Families,
Here is your Daily Devotion
“I love you.” Those are powerful words. They can change your life when they’re said by the right person. When God says it, he can change your life, your soul, your heart, and your eternity.
God tells us he loves us often. He says it in the sunshine and in the air that we breathe. He says it in the love of Christian family and friends. He says it in the blessings he pours so generously into our lives. He said it most powerfully in his Son’s sacrifice on the cross.
Jesus is teaching Nicodemus heavenly things when he draws a parallel between Moses’ snake and the crucifixion of the Christ. Then he speaks about God’s loving the world so much that he sent his own son to save it. The snake was a reminder of sin. The snake lifted up by Moses was a reminder of God’s love and forgiveness. It was a foreshadowing of the greatest act of love in the history of the universe.
Jesus Christ lifted up on the cross is the ultimate expression of God’s love. His suffering is the punishment that we deserve. It’s a reminder of the greatness of our sin and guilt. At the cross we start to grasp the depth of God’s love. Jesus gives up everything for us. He suffers God’s wrath. He is the only one in history to have literally gone through hell for us.
After the darkness, Jesus brings us to live in the light. We have forgiveness here. We have salvation. We live in God’s love, now and forever in heaven.
