“He was handed over to die because of our sins, and he was raised to life to make us right with God.” – Romans 4:25
The day after Jesus died His friends and family and followers were alone and did not know if He would really rise again. Imagine how they felt, and how others feel who do not have Jesus in their lives. Jesus combined endless love with epic suffering, standing in solidarity with those who also suffered. Pray that we too will stand in love for those who suffer the unimaginable. Ask God to give us the grace and compassion to stand in the gap on behalf of the most vulnerable.
