Day 7: Nails – Everything Nailed to the Cross
Verse: Mark 15v24
They nailed Jesus to a cross and gambled to see who would get his clothes.
Take some pieces of fabric or paper and carefully nail them to a piece of wood. Expose the piece of wood to wind or other elements. Observe how the nails hold them there.
When Jesus went to the cross he took our sin, mistakes, unkindness, all the things that go wrong for us, with him. Like Jesus those things were nailed to the cross. All of our sin is taken away by Jesus and we are free because of him. The sins we have committed are left there on the cross forever.
Thank you Jesus that you have eternally (forever) taken away my sins. Thank you that you left them on the cross when you rose again and that it has no power over me any more.
May we all come with fresh eyes to the story we know so well, may we let the truths soak deep down and take root, and may these truths breathe life into our daily comings and goings.
These reflections are not exhaustive they are simply a way to add extra thoughtfulness to your Easter celebrations. I hope they bless you dear families. x
