Acts 2:24, “But God raised him from the dead, freeing him from the agony of death, because it was impossible for death to keep its hold on him.”
Whenever I think about how difficult life is, I’m always reminded and encouraged by these two verses, especially this week. Imagine this: Jesus Christ, the King of Kings and God’s only Son, who is about to be arrested and crucified for me … prays for me. What if we treated one another like this and willingly gave of ourselves for other people?
John 17:11-12, “I will remain in the world no longer, but they are still in the world, and I am coming to you. Holy Father, protect them by the power of your name, the name you gave me, so that they may be one as we are one. While I was with them, I protected them and kept them safe by that name you gave me. None has been lost except the one doomed to destruction so that Scripture would be fulfilled.”
