Jesus Died for You

We never fully know the meaning of the cross until we realize that our Lord’s death was for us, personally. We are told that in one of the early days of Martin Luther’s pilgrimage of faith, he was found in a posture of deep struggle, holding a crucifix, and sobbing repeatedly, “Fur mich! Fur milch!” –for me, for me! Charles Wesley put it eloquently in a hymn: “O Love divine, what hast thou done! /The immortal God hath died for me!” Stop some day before a cross, wait for your soul to grow quiet, then say aloud, but softly, “This was for me.” -Wesley Study Bible pg 1316
