Jesus died willingly.Â He was not forced to die by an angry or cruel God.Â He knew the cost, he knew the pain, and yet he still gave himself freely, for you and for me.
‘Because of the Lord, who is faithful, the Holy One of Israel, who has chosen you.’ If you remember nothing else from this morning, remember this. If that is too much, remember this: because of the Lord.

Have you ever found something important or valuable, that you didnâ€™t know you had?
