An Unnecessary Death

Last week I was finishing my devotions and was briefly thinking about how Jesus died on the cross and suddenly a thought came to me: Jesus didn't have to die for us! Of course He didn't have to, but what I mean is that it wasn't like Jesus needed us to live with Him or provide Him with food and shelter. Acts 17:24-25 says this:

"The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples built by hands. And he is not served by human hands, as if he needed anything, because he himself gives all men life and breath and everything else."

God doesn't need us(sorry that sounds so terrible!), but He loves us so much that He would send his only Son to die for us, people He doesn't need! He could have said,"Oops! They messed up! Too bad for them!", but He didn't! Instead He lovingly came to earth and took all our sin so that we could live with Him for eternity. He doesn't need our praise or our sacrifices, but we so need Him, don't we? It struck me that Jesus would die for us, not because He had to or because He would be lost without us, but because He loves us and because we would be entirely lost without Him! Remember to thank for all He's done for you. I know He has redeemed me and blessed me far beyond what I deserve. Oh, praise His glorious Name!
