" He, Jesus, in the days of his flesh, having offered, with strong cry and tears, prayers and supplications to those who could deliver him from death, and having been heard because of his piety, although being a Son, learned obedience by the things that he suffered and, having been perfected, he became the Author of eternal salvation to all who obey him' 

Hebrews 5:7-9 

Thoughts: We see that Jesus cried, wept, prayed and begged, he was pious, and even though God heard His Son, He did not deliver Him from the cross. You can imagine the suffering of God, knowing that one word of His was enough to deliver Jesus from the cross, and for the love of me, you, and all mankind, 

Jesus was condemned without sin and died in our place to give eternal salvation to all those who believe and obey. Jesus was resurrected on the 3rd day, this one of God the FATHER is seated, the head of the church and one day he will come back to pick us up. Hallelujah. 

Prayer: Kindly Father, there are no words to express your love for us, and the least I can do to thank You and be obedient to Your word. It continues to strengthen me, giving me the joy of salvation for me and to be able to pass it on to my brothers. I want to have a life in communion with the Lord each day, so that I can enter the kingdom of heaven. I pray in Jesus' name. Amen.
