Love Bears All Things

Love bears all things – 1 Corinthians 13:7

jesus15-jesus-bore-our-sinsJesus bore the sins of this world.  He carried our weaknesses, our sorrows which weighed Him down.  Our troubles became His.  He took up our cross and took it to Calvary where He paid our sin debt in full.  He bore the sins of many and interceded for sinners.  He did this all in the name of love.  He wanted to make it possible for many to be counted righteous once they placed their faith in Him, their sin Bearer.

He took on the wrath of God on our behalf.  He bore our guilt and was punished.  He was nailed on the cross between two criminals (Isaiah 53:4, 11).  Jesus carried our sins because He loved us.  Although we were guilty, He took the blame.  Our salvation meant so much to Him that He willingly gave His life for us.  Love bears all and gives all.  Jesus suffered a cruel death so that we could have eternal life.  He bore the indignity of the cross so that we could one day share the kingdom which the Father has prepared for us.  What a wonderful Savior is Jesus our Lord!
