Everything you need to make it through this day is found in the truth of the cross of Christ. You should wake up remembering the cross. You ought to eat breakfast thanking the Lord for the cross. You should go about your day thinking about the cross, and when troubles come, run straight to the cross. Why?
The cross means Jesus loves you - When you are feeling down on yourself, remember that God left heaven, became a man and gave His life over to torture and death all because He wanted you. He loves you that much.
The cross means you are free - When Jesus died on the cross, He not only paid for your sin, He actually became your sin and crucified all of it. If you have accepted His gift of forgiveness and new life, you are totally and completely clean and righteous in His sight. Guilt and shame don’t stick to you anymore.
The cross means you are never alone - No matter what happens and no matter how bad life gets, you will never be abandoned because Jesus bore the abandonment we deserve. When He was on the cross, He said, “My God, my God, Why have you forsaken me?” - He was rejected so that you will never, ever be rejected, ever.
Everything you need to make it through this day can be found in this statement: “Jesus died for me.” Everything you need to face whatever the devil throws at you can be found in this truth: “Jesus died for me.”
