Take Me Instead

…he offered himself. (Hebrews 7:27, NIV)

…He  brought Himself [as a sacrifice]… (Hebrews 7:27, Amplified)

…He offered a sacrifice once for all, when he gave himself. (Hebrews 7:27, CEV)

You and I were sinners (Romans 3:23). Our sentence was death (Romans 6:23). He went before the judge and said, “Take Me instead”.

He offered Himself in our place. He died so that we might live.

We heard it. We believed it. We received it and we were saved! (Romans 10:13)

Many have yet to hear. Many have yet to believe. Many have yet to receive.

Let us be the ones to let them know, the price has been paid and they too can be saved.

For whosever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. How then shall they call on him whom they have not believed? And how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? (Romans 10:13-14, KJV)

One thought on “Take Me Instead

  1. “Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved.” Acts 4:12 NIV. This is one of L’s Scriptures for memorization this week!
