4 - Never alone

There are so many different messages that come from the story of the Cross, but one that brings great consolation to many is this: Christ dies for us in order that we might be reunited with the Father. What Christ does for us on the Cross of Calvary is that he makes sure we are never alone again. Our sin doesn't need to separate us from the Father, nor from those around us.

"Two are better than one,
    because they have a good return for their labour:
10 If either of them falls down,
    one can help the other up.
But pity anyone who falls
    and has no one to help them up.
11 Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm.
    But how can one keep warm alone?
12 Though one may be overpowered,
    two can defend themselves.
A cord of three strands is not quickly broken." - Ecclesiastes 4:9-12

Thank you Lord for the grace found in the Cross. Thank you that through the saving work of Jesus I am never alone. My sin doesn't exclude me from your kingdom, because Jesus has paid the price for it all.

Living in Grace
