“…Jesus Christ, the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth. To Him who loves us and released us from our sins by His blood–”
There are many things from which we might like to be released. We might like to be released from the burden of our taxes. We might like to be released from financial obligations. We might like to be released from the hospital. We might like to be released from jail. We might like to be released from a burdensome job. We might like to be released from a commitment. We might like to be released from a grudge someone holds toward us. We might like to be released from the guilt of our past wrongs. But, ahh, take a deep breath. Take a moment and ponder what it means that Jesus Christ has released you from your sins. Ponder even more deeply that the release came through His crucified body. With a grateful heart, let’s express our genuine thanks to Him. True, we may have other things from which we would love to be released. But today we can be thankful, truly thankful for being released from our sins.
Lord Jesus Christ, my mind can’t get around the tremendous gift of salvation which You purchased for me with Your blood. I love You, THANK YOU, and praise You for RELEASING ME FROM MY SINS! You are a great and loving God!
