Jesus Paid the Ultimate Price That Day On Calvary

We know that “God so loved the world that He gave His only Son and who shall ever believe in Him shall not perish, but have everlasting life”. John 3:16 . The Lord Jesus Christ gave His life for us on the Cross at Calvary. Sometime we do not pause to understand the magnitude of that sacrifice. He was bruised, beaten, a crown of thorns placed on his head, flogged and whipped, spat upon and mocked. Stakes were driven through his hands and feet. He was pierced in the side with a spear..

Jesus paid the ultimate sacrifice for our salvation and for our eternal life. We should take time each day and give thanks to the Lord Jesus, because of His incredible and caring gift of Grace. He made it possible for all of us though confession to take hold of the gift of salvation. It was truly an ultimate price that He paid, that day on Calvary. Carrying the cross to His death up the hill to Calvary. Jesus gave His life, so that we might have life and be free from the sins of the world.

The most graphic example of Jesus sacrifice is portrayed in the movie the Passion of The Christ. This movie not only showed the brutal physical torment that Jesus went through; but is also showed the Love and the deep concern that He had for our redemption. This was the ultimate sacrifice and the ultimate gift that Jesus gave us that day. So that all who believe in Him will have eternal life.

Isaiah 53: 5: “But he was wounded and crushed for our sins. He was beaten that we might have peace,He was whipped and we were healed!”

Of course he could have; but that wasn’t God’s plan for salvation. Here’s my article (based on my Easter sermon) from back in the spring:
