Day 10 – Scripture and Prayer for Lent.

I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. – Galatians 2:20 

Lord I was crucified with You. But I didn’t feel the whip upon Your back. I didnt wince when the crown of thornes was placed upon Your head, I didn’t scream in agony when the nails were driven through Your hands and feet. My breath was not taken away when Your cross was dropped in the ground. I wasn’t stared upon in shame as You hung there between heaven and earth. I never felt the pangs of thirst or the excrutiating pains of suffication. I didn’t shed one drop of redemptive blood. I never felt the blackness of our Father turning away  and I never felt the need to cry out My God, My God why has Thou forsaken me. But I was crucified with You. I felt nothing because You bore all the physical, emotional and spiritual consequences of sin. Not Your sin, my sin. What you have done for me is overwhelming. Thank You that I can say “I was crucified with Christ.”
