The Ultimate Sacrifice

 

From Mark 10:45

For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.

 

I am sure that many of you, like me, are engaged in watching the tragic conflict in Ukraine. This appears to most of us to be an active act of aggression against the Ukraine people by Russia. And as a result, we are seeing a needless cost of lives, on both sides. 

 

The Ukraine people are in most cases sacrificing their existing lifestyle, and in some cases, their own life for what they believe in, a free and independent country. In this time of Lent, we are once again reminded of the sacrifice that Jesus made to save our lives. While similar, Jesus’ sacrifice was the ultimate one; giving his life to save ours. 

 

As we head into this most sacred week, let us not forget that Jesus gave his life for us, and let us pray that those who are sacrificing their lives and futures are doing similar things for their countrymen. 

Prayer for Today

God, please help us to remember the sacrifice that Jesus made for we sinners. Please help us to live better lives and to give and sacrifice for others. Our prayers go out also to the Ukrainian people and the sacrifices they are making for their country. Amen.
