Discerning the Effect of the Lord’s Sacrifice on Your Life

This is a day of discernment. The question is; “How are you responding to the realization that Jesus Christ, God incarnate has shown you perfect Love and has even died in so doing that you may receive God’s atoning Love and have eternal life.” Write a few sentences, from your heart, in a free flowing manner in answer to this question. Just write 2-5 sentences of whatever comes to mind. ______________________________________________________

Now ponder for a few minutes what you have written. After this time of meditation you may wish to add another sentence or two, without altering anything you wrote previously. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Now, imagine yourself several years from now at the point of death. With the freedom and clarity of this vantage point, ask yourself: “In what ways did I fail to respond to God’s love for me as displayed in and through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ on my behalf?” ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Then from the same vantage point ask yourself: “In what ways did I respond well to God’s love for me as displayed in and through the sacrifice of Jesus Christ on my behalf?” _________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
