[If you have a printed Bible available, I recommend you read the passages directly from it. It’s a great way to teach our children to treasure it.]
We all have sinned, you have sinned. We all have failed God with our actions, thoughts and words. No one is innocent of this. Except Jesus.
The angel told this to Joseph about Mary:
” ‘…She will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins’.”
“…but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”
Thank you Jesus, for being born and for dying in my place. Help me want to honor you instead of accepting my sin.
