Lord God, Heavenly Father, you did not spare your own Son. Instead you permitted him to suffer hell and die on the cross in our place. Comfort us with your prom...ise that our sins are taken away and our guilt is atoned for by his love. Strengthen us to follow him and bear our own crosses with the patience that you provide in the name of Jesus. Amen.
