Jesus, my Lord and Savior, you are the sacrifice that redirects the Father’s wrath from me to you. You are the proof of God’s love for me because of His sacrifice in sending you to take my place. Your love covers me as I live through you. You allow me to wear your robe of righteousness instead of the rags of shame that I deserved. You turned defeat into victory and death into eternal life. There is no one like you. I bring me reverence to praise you in your name above all names, according to the good and perfect will of the Father. Amen.

“In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him. In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.” (1 John 4: 9-10 ESV)
