“Knowing that all was now completed, and so that the Scripture would be fulfilled, Jesus said, “I am thirsty.” A jar of wine vinegar was there, so they soaked a sponge in it, put the sponge on a stalk of the hyssop plant, and lifted it to Jesus’ lips. When He had received the drink, Jesus said, “It is finished.” With that, He bowed His head and gave up His spirit.” (John 19:28-30)
Jesus said that He came so that we may have life and have it more abundantly. (John 10:10) When Christ died, He took our sins and burdens with Him. His death gave us life, His suffering gave us freedom, and His sacrifice gave us the victory.
Let go of the past that haunts you, you have a faithful and loving God who says you can leave it at the cross.
Your burdens, your worry, it’s not yours to bear, leave it at the cross. Your pain and your hurt, your Heavenly Father is a God who cares for you so much that He collects every tear, He can repair your broken heart just trust Him and leave it at the cross.
Your fear and your doubt, that’s not the life He wants for you free yourself and leave it at the cross.
God loves you so much that He gave His only begotten Son so that you may be free from all that binds you and free to live the abundant and victorious life that He desires for you. Let it all go and leave it at the cross.
