• “Jesus, who so often says “Whoever loves Me…” “Do you love Me?” is concerned about our LOVE! He is concerned about a special kind of love…He who has loved us so much wants to possess us completely, with everything we are and have. Jesus gave Himself wholly and completely for us. Now His love is yearning for us to surrender ourselves and everything that we are to Him, so that He can really be our “first love” – Basilea Schlink

Mary Was Wounded by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 08/26/11

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: Eight days after giving birth to Jesus, Mary was told, “A sword will pierce your own soul.” She wouldn’t fully understand those words until thirty-three years later. When Mary watched as Jesus was crucified, her soul was pierced.

For one thing, she was losing her son. But I also think her soul was pierced because she recognized her own sin. Jesus was dying not just for the world—he was dying for her. We all need to make that same discovery.

Until a “sword pierces our soul,” we don’t realize the depth of our sin and need. To be forgiven, Mary had to place her faith in the crucified Son of God who died in her place.

Have you trusted Christ as your Savior, realizing that the wounds He suffered on the cross were because of your sin and for your salvation?

  • ”As we grow spiritually, God begins to wean us from things that we think we can’t live without: things, comfort, the longing for life to ‘work.’ That’s a childish instinct, to say, ‘Life has to work the way I want it to work, and now’.” – Nancy Leigh DeMoss
