He Gave Himself For Me

One day a man decided that he was going to kill President Harry S. Truman. He waited patiently for the right moment when the president would come into his line of sight. Just as he pulled the trigger and fired his gun, a Secret Service Agent threw himself in front of the president, took the bullet and was killed. He gave his life for the president and the president’s life was spared.

“I never knew what it meant,” said Mr. Truman, “to have someone die in my place.”

There is One, however, who has died in our place that we might have eternal life. There is One who loved us so much that He gave His only Son to die for us that we might have eternal life and live forever with Him.

This One that gave His life did not live a secret life. He lived His life where all could see Him, hear Him, come to know Him and follow Him. The Bible says that “He loved me and gave Himself for me.”

Thank God that He loves us, gave His Son for us, and that He died for us.

Prayer: Heavenly Father, we thank You that You loved us so much that You gave Your Son Jesus to die in our place. May we come to love You more each day and realize that because You died, we may live: in Christ’s name. Amen.
