I asked Jesus, “How much do you love me?”
He said, “This much” and stretched out His hands and died.
Died for me, a fallen sinner! He died for you too.


The night before My death, you were on my mind.
I desired deeply to have a relationship with you,
to spend eternity with you in heaven.
Yet, sin separated you from Me and My Father.
An acceptable sacrifice of innocent blood was needed
for the payment of your sins.

The hour had come when I was to die for you.
With heaviness of heart I went out to the garden to pray.
In agony of soul I sweat, as it were, drops of blood
as I cried out to Him,
“Oh My Father, if it be possible,
let this cup pass from me:
nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt.”
~ Matthew 26:39

While I was in the garden the soldiers came to arrest Me
even though I was innocent of any crime.
They brought Me before Pilate’s hall.
I stood before My accusers.
Then Pilate took Me and scourged Me.
Lacerations cut deeply into My back as I took the beating for you.
Then the soldiers planted a crown of thorns upon My head
and dressed Me in a purple robe.
Blood flowed down My face…
there is no beauty that you would desire Me.

Then the soldiers mocked Me,
saying, ” Hail, King of the Jews!”
They brought Me before the cheering crowd,
shouting, “Crucify Him. Crucify Him.”
as I stood there silently, bloody, bruised and beaten.
Despised and rejected of men.

Pilate sought to release Me
but gave in to the pressure of the crowd.
“Take ye Him, and crucify Him: for I find no fault in Him.”
He said to them.
Then he delivered Me to be crucified.

You were on my mind when I carried My cross
up the lonesome hill to Golgotha.
It was My love for you, and to do My Father’s will,
that gave Me the strength to bear beneath its heavy load.
There, I bore your grief’s and I carried your sorrows
laying down My life for the sin of mankind.

The soldiers sneered giving heavy blows of the hammer
driving the nails deeply into My hands and feet.
Love nailed your sins to the cross, never to be dealt with again.
They hoisted Me up and left Me to die.
Yet, they did not take My life.
I willingly gave it.

The sky grew black. Even the sun stopped shining.
My body wracked with execution pain
took the weight of your sin and bore it’s punishment
so that the wrath of God could be satisfied.

When all things were accomplished.
I committed My spirit into My Father’s hands,
and breathed out my final words,” It is finished.”
I bowed my head and gave up the ghost.

I Love you…

“Greater love hath no man than this,
that a man lay down his life for his friends.”
~ John 15:13


Dear Soul,
The Lord loves you!
What more could He do to prove His love to you
having given every ounce of His blood for the payment of your sins?
He desires to forgive you for every sin that you have ever committed.
He wants to have a personal relationship with you
and spend eternity with you in heaven.

Tonight, if you would like to receive the gift of eternal life
first you must believe in the Lord.
You have to ask for your sins to be forgiven
and put your trust in the Lord.
There’s only one way to heaven and that’s through the Lord Jesus.
That’s God’s wonderful plan of salvation.

You can begin a personal relationship with him
by praying a prayer such as the following:

“Oh God, I am a sinner.
I am sorry for my sins.
I want to turn from my sin.
I receive Jesus Christ as my Savior;
I confess Him as my Lord.
From now on I want to follow Him.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.”

“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”
~ Romans 10:13
“According as He hath chosen us in Him before the foundation of the world…”
~ Ephesians 1:4
