He personally bore our sins in His [own] body on the tree [as on an altar and offered Himself on it], that we might die (cease to exist) to sin and live to righteousness. By His wounds you have been healed.  -1 Peter 2:24

I hope I have never tried to encourage you by saying “hang in there.”  What awful advice!  

Jesus hung for us!  We never have to “hang in there!” 

He hung for:

  • Our sorrows 
  • Our sins
  • Our forgiveness 
  • Our freedom
  • Our redemption 
  • Our deliverance
  • Our happiness 
  • Our healing
  • Our now
  • Our eternity 

He hung so we didn’t have to. He hung  so we could stand!  He hung so we could live the way God originally planned.  He died so  that we could live above and not “just hang in there.“

I enCOURAGE you to LIVE the life Jesus hung for.
