Jesus, open our hearts to all that You are as we gaze at the wonder of what You accomplished on the cross on Good Friday. We know that in Your death, in the greatest act of love ever, You broke the chains of slavery that once held us and set us free. You reconciled us back to the Father and restored our relationship. Because of the pain You suffered on this day, we can put off the old and put on the new. We have been praying that you give us vision for the days and years ahead. We rest in the certainty of that future because of Your sacrifice. Speak to us, that we may hear Your voice, and may we be swift in our obedience. We love you Jesus. Amen.

Challenge: Share with someone today how the gospel has affected you, this truth that God himself has come to rescue and renew all of creation in and through the work of Jesus Christ on our behalf.
