To the one who shattered every remnant of my sin. The only one righteous enough to judge, loves extending mercy to us.Jesus THANK YOU that You tore away the thing that separated us and reinstated us as children of God. Thank You that althoug You saw how costly of a people we were, You didn't begrudgingly take up Your cross but went to Calvary "for the joy set before You." Thank You for loving us that much. Remind us that You love us that much. Help us not to forget how much You paid for us so that we know just how much You value us. We love You, Jesus.
