Jesus' death was the greatest gift of love of all time and nothing will ever top it. Can you imagine the very idea of sacrificing your only child,who had never done any wrong, and yet was in the only position to answer for everyone elses doings? What a crippling thought, and yet God sent His son deliberately-willfully, knowing exactly how we would treat Him, to show us just how big His love for us is.

God's love really is beyond our boundary of imagination.

On reflection, for one to die on behalf of everyone else and be raised again had to be spotless Himself or i don't suppose it could have been justified, or make sense.

It is incredible to think that if you were the only human being on earth, Jesus would still have gone through the same death-the cruelty,that pain and torture for you alone.WOW.

We now have a second chance of eternal life since Jesus wiped the slate clean.If God has done this unexplainable gesture which i can't find the words to define, it means that there are also no bounderies to His patience with us-His mercy and forgiveness when we still just can't help ourselves.

That single and humble wooden cross that held our Saviour as He died, means EVERYTHING to us.It means significant and dramatic change in life, in death, in law, sin, in fact everything crucial to everything that God made.The greatest power in heaven came down on to the earth to be among us, talk, share food, , teach and reason with us in the most humble way. Shame to man, who could not recognise in his heart his saviour-the walking love of his very creator, and instead, in his ignorance, struck Him down, and sent Him to die.

The prophecy however, had now been fullfilled-Jesus had performed something that even hell could not foresee.

As it goes in all classic films and story books, good allways prevails in the end, it is destined-but not without a battle!

We can take up our crosses in confidence though, because Jesus in on our side sharing the load, and He has already won the War!

Good content in this article! It would be a great salvation tract...:o)

I would look to clean up the punctuation by using less hyphens as well as making sure that there are spaces after a period. Also watch the capitalization! Be consistent...

One other thing I noticed was sentence structure. It is helpful to read aloud your writing several times to make sure sentences flow and do not sound incomplete or choppy.

These suggestions are all technical and such things come in time (I know they are still coming for me!). Again your article was a very clear reminder of Christ's death on the cross (and eventual resurrection) means for all humanity. Good work!
