Reading today from 1 Peter 3:12-22.

For Christ also suffered once for sins, the righteous for the unrighteous, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive in the spirit… (1 Peter 3:18)

God knows the power of sin; Jesus Christ carried it all on the cross. Sin causes pain and suffering. But Jesus died for those sins. Jesus died for us so that we may know eternal life with our Father in Heaven.

Jesus, the perfect man, God Himself among us, died for us, the unworthy.

The cost to us? Faithfulness.

What we receive? Love and life.

What grace! What love! What a God!
