John 10:17-18

“The reason my Father loves me is that I lay down my life—only to take it up again. No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have authority to lay it down and authority to take it up again. This command I received from my Father.”


-The grace of Christ is revealed as none could demand His life of Him, He laid it down of Himself for our redemption. By His authority, He offered Himself to be our Savior for it was necessary for us to call for it, that we may be saved. He was the Offering, who by laying down His life offered up Himself that we may have life everlasting. He died in the place and stead of men; to obtain our being set free from the punishment of sin that we may obtain the pardon of our sin; and that His death should obtain that pardon. Through the love of the Father who loves Jesus and loves us, that He laid His life down for us His sheep, and we belong to Him. He could not be judged, but the Father gave Him authority to execute judgement because He is the Son of Man (John 5:27), our Lord and Savior.


Bless the Lord, O my soul, and all that is within me. Bless His holy name. Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all His benefits. Who forgives all our iniquities. Who heals all our diseases. Who redeems our life from the pit. Who crowns us with steadfast love and mercy. Who satisfies us with good so that our youth is renewed like the eagle’s. Renew our strength dear Jesus that we may soar on wings like eagles, run and not grow weary, walk and not be faint. We proclaim Your righteousness, and praises all day long Jesus. Thank You dear Jesus for loving us. Thank You for laying Your life for our salvation. Thank You for becoming Sin that we may be free from condemnation. We praise You Jesus and exult Your holy name. May You forgive us of all our trespasses and give us the grace to come close to You as You are close to us. Grant us the grace to remain in You as You are in us. Grant us the grace to lay our lives for one another. May we always have strong faith in You for You are our Lord and Savior. Thank You dear Jesus for loving us and for taking good care of us. May You deliver all those who are prison and set them free. May Your sufficient grace reach all those who are sick that they may be healed. Deliver also merciful Savior all the children living in the street that their joy may be full. Answer merciful Savior our prayers and hearts desires we humbly beseech You. You are the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and End, the First and the Last. We exult Your name and lift Your name high. Amen

Blessed Thursday
