As a man there was no limit to the sufferings the Lord Jesus Christ endured. There was no limit to the insults against Him that He silently accepted. There was no limit as to how much he was willing to bear that we might be saved. This same attitude should be in us. The death of the cross was uniquely His. The life that each of us lives is uniquely ours and can have as its objective that to which mind directs us. We can live for self or others. We can serve God or be self-serving. There was no limit on how much the Lord was willing to set aside that He might forgive us. If we set limits on our willingness to forgive, that will effectively stop our joy. The death of the cross involves much more that we can understand. God’s righteous demands had to be satisfied. Sin had to be removed in order for us to be justified. Satan and death had to be defeated. All these things and more were accomplished by the Lord. His sacrifice saved us.
