Many years ago now, I sat in a theatre with hundreds of others, holding back tears as I watched the hit movie, The Passion of the Christ. I watched as the guards whipped and mocked Jesus. I cringed when they pushed the thorny crown into His brow. I wept as Jesus hung on the cross–offering forgiveness in the midst of His suffering.
I had already been a Christ-follower for a very long time, but the visual reminder of Jesus’ sacrifice for me brought a new wave of devotion from my heart. He is worthy! He is worthy of our fasting. He is worthy of our prayers. And He is worthy of our hearts, our souls, and our minds.
Lord Jesus, You are worthy of all my praise. I invite You into my life in new ways. I want You to have all my heart, soul, and mind! It’s Yours. Thank You for giving everything for me. I’m devoted to You. In Jesus’ Name, Amen!
