It Was for You

“It was for you—the redeemed—that God sent his Son into the world. Yes, his only Son was given for you. And Christ willingly and freely gave himself away for your benefit. It was for you that he was born, that he died, and that he rose again. It was for you that he ascended into heaven, where he now intercedes on your behalf. It was for you that the fruit of Christ’s labors is freely applied to your hearts by the Holy Spirit, even though you don’t deserve it and have no strength or righteousness of your own. Therefore, let your life be spent praising God!”
