God’s Sacrifice, Jesus’ Sacrifice
The sacrifice of Jesus reveals God’s love for the world.
For all eternity, Jesus’ sacrifice will be honored, revered, proclaimed and infinitely more.
God sent His Son Jesus Christ to die for the world (John 6).
Jesus died for the life of the world (John 6:51).
Only one faith has a Savior Who died for the world.
Only one God loves the world so much that He gave His only Son and sent Him to the earth to save and redeem mankind.
Yet, Jesus was hated, betrayed, condemned, and rejected.
He was beaten again and again, scourged, whipped, and flogged to the point of death. He was brutally whipped 39 times. The instrument had thongs with metal hooks and pottery shards, designed to tear the flesh to the bone.
A crown of thorns was placed on His head. His head was beaten with a heavy wooden stick.
He was mocked, ridiculed, spit upon, and slapped on the face.
He was insulted, taunted, reviled, and blasphemed.
They drove nails through his hands and feet.
He was crucified on a cross for six hours, one of the most brutal forms of execution. He was killed. He was executed.
Jesus shed His blood seven times and was the perfect sacrifice.
