"Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross;"

Colossians 2:14
King James Version

Carrie E. Breck wrote the hymn "Nailed to the Cross". "There was One who was willing to die in my stead, That a soul so unworthy might live; And the path to the cross He was willing to tread, All the sins of my life to forgive." I read in the newspaper about a man who had walked many miles for charity and that is wonderful. However, no one has ever walked as far and as long as Jesus has walked for you and for me.

When Jesus walked that long lonely road to Calvary and there allowed them to crucify Him for your sins and for my sins, that was the longest walk ever taken. Not only was it the longest walk, it was also the loneliest walk. Have you ever thought about what was going through the mind of our Saviour as He walked to the cross?

There are times when we feel all alone and that nobody cares but Jesus is always with us. Not only is He always with us, he really cares about us. No, we are never alone but Jesus was all alone as He hung on the cross with the blood flowing down His body. God had to turn away from Jesus because Jesus had taken our sins on Him and God is a Holy God and He can't look at sin so Jesus was all alone.

If you ever feel that nobody cares about you, remember the old rugged cross and the agony and excrutiating pain that Jesus endured for you so you can be saved and go to Heaven. Jesus loved you yesterday. He loves you today and He will love you forever. There is nothing you could ever do that would make Him stop loving you.

Please join me in praising the One Who loves you so much He died for you. We know He loves us but does He know we love Him? We can say we love Him but what are we doing to prove to Him that we love Him? When Jesus looks in your heart, does He see things that make Him happy or does He see things that break His heart and make Him sad?
