The ultimate sacrifice . . .

1 Jun

During communion at church this morning while reflecting upon Christ’s sacrifice on the cross, I asked myself. “Would I be willing to sacrifice my life in that same way for someone else?  Sacrifice and suffer willingly for another human being? . . .

No, that’s too much to bear. . . . .

Well, what about Sammy?  Would I have done it for Sammy? . . .

Yes, I would have done anything for him. . . .

Most parents would do the same thing for their child, wouldn’t they?  It’s only natural, right? . . .

Can you even imagine a parent being forced to do that for their child?  . . .

Of course, God did it for His child . . .

Oh wait, that child is ME!”

After listening to my thoughts, I have a feeling that God leaned over close to Sammy, nudged him with His elbow, rolled His eyes and said, “Well, duh!”
