For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

2 Corinthians 5:21 (KJV)

And he made his grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth.

Isiah 53:9 (KJV)

Jesus Christ had no sin. He was sinless. Yet He died a sinners death. He died a death that was so low and tormenting. A death that was fit for no man. Yet He did if for us! For you and me!! He was completely sinless, yet he died as if He was the worst sinner of all.

Just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life as a ransom for many [paying the price to set them free from the penalty of sin].

Matthew 20:28 (KJV)

Jesus Christ came to serve us, the son of God came to serve us! And to give us His life for a ransom for our sins!! HALLELUJAH!!!!!

 He riseth from supper, and laid aside his garments; and took a towel, and girded himself... After that he poureth water into a bason, and began to wash the disciples' feet, and to wipe them with the towel wherewith he was girded.
John 13: 4-5 (KJV)

He was so near death, yet he washed his disciples feet. He washed their feet so they could be apart of Him! Jesus answered him, If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me. John 13:8 (KJV)

 And as they were eating, Jesus took bread, and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples, and said, Take, eat; this is my body...And he took the cup, and gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it;...For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.
Matthew 26:26-28 (KJV)
He took communion with His disciples! And told us to do this in remembrance of Him! To remember His sacrifice!
 And while he yet spake, behold a multitude, and he that was called Judas, one of the twelve, went before them, and drew near unto Jesus to kiss him...But Jesus said unto him, Judas, betrayest thou the Son of man with a kiss?..When they which were about him saw what would follow, they said unto him, Lord, shall we smite with the sword?...And one of them smote the servant of the high priest, and cut off his right ear...And Jesus answered and said, Suffer ye thus far. And he touched his ear, and healed him.
Luke 22:47-51 (KJV)

Even when they came to arrest Him He still healed them!! Still showed love and compassion!! "Praise God!!"

 And they that had laid hold on Jesus led him away to Caiaphas the high priest, where the scribes and the elders were assembled... But Peter followed him afar off unto the high priest's palace, and went in, and sat with the servants, to see the end... Now the chief priests, and elders, and all the council, sought false witness against Jesus, to put him to death;... But found none: yea, though many false witnesses came, yet found they none. At the last came two false witnesses,... And said, This fellow said, I am able to destroy the temple of God, and to build it in three days...And the high priest arose, and said unto him, Answerest thou nothing? what is it which these witness against thee?...But Jesus held his peace, And the high priest answered and said unto him, I adjure thee by the living God, that thou tell us whether thou be the Christ, the Son of God... Jesus saith unto him, Thou hast said: nevertheless I say unto you, Hereafter shall ye see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven... Then the high priest rent his clothes, saying, He hath spoken blasphemy; what further need have we of witnesses? behold, now ye have heard his blasphemy... What think ye? They answered and said, He is guilty of death... Then did they spit in his face, and buffeted him; and others smote him with the palms of their hands,... Saying, Prophesy unto us, thou Christ, Who is he that smote thee?
Matthew 26: 57-68 (KJV)
He endured mockery, shame, and torment. For us.

 And Jesus stood before the governor: and the governor asked him, saying, Art thou the King of the Jews? And Jesus said unto him, Thou sayest... And when he was accused of the chief priests and elders, he answered nothing... Then said Pilate unto him, Hearest thou not how many things they witness against thee?... And he answered him to never a word; insomuch that the governor marvelled greatly... Now at that feast the governor was wont to release unto the people a prisoner, whom they would... And they had then a notable prisoner, called Barabbas...Therefore when they were gathered together, Pilate said unto them, Whom will ye that I release unto you? Barabbas, or Jesus which is called Christ?...For he knew that for envy they had delivered him... When he was set down on the judgment seat, his wife sent unto him, saying, Have thou nothing to do with that just man: for I have suffered many things this day in a dream because of him...But the chief priests and elders persuaded the multitude that they should ask Barabbas, and destroy Jesus...The governor answered and said unto them, Whether of the twain will ye that I release unto you? They said, Barabbas...Pilate saith unto them, What shall I do then with Jesus which is called Christ? They all say unto him, Let him be crucified...And the governor said, Why, what evil hath he done? But they cried out the more, saying, Let him be crucified...When Pilate saw that he could prevail nothing, but that rather a tumult was made, he took water, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of this just person: see ye to it...Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on us, and on our children...Then released he Barabbas unto them: and when he had scourged Jesus, he delivered him to be crucified...Then the soldiers of the governor took Jesus into the common hall, and gathered unto him the whole band of soldiers... And they stripped him, and put on him a scarlet robe...And when they had platted a crown of thorns, they put it upon his head, and a reed in his right hand: and they bowed the knee before him, and mocked him, saying, Hail, King of the Jews!... And they spit upon him, and took the reed, and smote him on the head... And after that they had mocked him, they took the robe off from him, and put his own raiment on him, and led him away to crucify him.
Matthew 27:11-31 (KJV)

He was betrayed by us. The very people he had came to save. The people that he had heals, loves, and ministers to, commended Him to death.
He was mocked, and tortured by the solders. A crown of thorns was planted in His head, for us, so we could have soundness of mind! He endured all this for us!! Ya'll this is such deep love!!!

 And as they came out, they found a man of Cyrene, Simon by name: him they compelled to bear his cross... And when they were come unto a place called Golgotha, that is to say, a place of a skull,...They gave him vinegar to drink mingled with gall: and when he had tasted thereof, he would not drink... And they crucified him, and parted his garments, casting lots: that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the prophet, They parted my garments among them, and upon my vesture did they cast lots... And sitting down they watched him there... And set up over his head his accusation written, This Is Jesus The King Of The Jews... Then were there two thieves crucified with him, one on the right hand, and another on the left... And they that passed by reviled him, wagging their heads,... And saying, Thou that destroyest the temple, and buildest it in three days, save thyself. If thou be the Son of God, come down from the cross...Likewise also the chief priests mocking him, with the scribes and elders, said,..He saved others; himself he cannot save. If he be the King of Israel, let him now come down from the cross, and we will believe him...He trusted in God; let him deliver him now, if he will have him: for he said, I am the Son of God...The thieves also, which were crucified with him, cast the same in his teeth.
Matthew 27: 32:44 (KJV)
He was crucified! Between two common thieves!! And when one believed on Him He gave him eternal life! Likes He offers us all! 
And one of the malefactors which were hanged railed on him, saying, If thou be Christ, save thyself and us...But the other answering rebuked him, saying, Dost not thou fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation?...And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds: but this man hath done nothing amiss...And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom... And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, Today shalt thou be with me in paradise.
Luke 23: 39-43 (KJV)
He died for us!! For us! He was made a mockery of. People mocked Him and told Him if He was the Son Of God to come down from the cross. They didn't realize that He was on that cross to SAVE THEM! To Save US!!

 Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land unto the ninth hour... And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice, saying, Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani? that is to say, My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?... Some of them that stood there, when they heard that, said, This man calleth for Elias... And straightway one of them ran, and took a spunge, and filled it with vinegar, and put it on a reed, and gave him to drink...The rest said, Let be, let us see whether Elias will come to save him...Jesus, when he had cried again with a loud voice, yielded up the ghost...And, behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom; and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent;...And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose,...And came out of the graves after his resurrection, and went into the holy city, and appeared unto many...Now when the centurion, and they that were with him, watching Jesus, saw the earthquake, and those things that were done, they feared greatly, saying, Truly this was the Son of God.
Matthew 27:45-54 (KJV)

Jesus died for us! He died a horrible death for you and for me! He died so we could be forgiven. Free from fear and bondage. He did all this for you and me! This is SO HUMBLING! God sent His only son to die for us, to purchase us with His precious blood. He loved us THAT MUCH!! The God of the universe cares that much about us! He wanted us not to be separated from Him, He wanted us to be forgiven and live a free life!!! Hallelujah for the cross!!!!

 In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre...And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it...His countenance was like lightning, and his raiment white as snow:.. And for fear of him the keepers did shake, and became as dead men... And the angel answered and said unto the women, Fear not ye: for I know that ye seek Jesus, which was crucified... He is not here: for he is risen, as he said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay...And go quickly, and tell his disciples that he is risen from the dead; and, behold, he goeth before you into Galilee; there shall ye see him: lo, I have told you... And they departed quickly from the sepulchre with fear and great joy; and did run to bring his disciples word... And as they went to tell his disciples, behold, Jesus met them, saying, All hail. And they came and held him by the feet, and worshipped him... Then said Jesus unto them, Be not afraid: go tell my brethren that they go into Galilee, and there shall they see me... Now when they were going, behold, some of the watch came into the city, and shewed unto the chief priests all the things that were done... And when they were assembled with the elders, and had taken counsel, they gave large money unto the soldiers,... Saying, Say ye, His disciples came by night, and stole him away while we slept... And if this come to the governor's ears, we will persuade him, and secure you... So they took the money, and did as they were taught: and this saying is commonly reported among the Jews until this day... Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, into a mountain where Jesus had appointed them... And when they saw him, they worshipped him: but some doubted... And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth... Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:..Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

He made a way where we could have life in Christ!!! Hallelujah!!!! ALL power was given to Jesus Christ, in heaven and in earth!! WE can have Jesus' AMAZING power in our lives! Power to overcome the devil and live a free and victorious life! And this is one my my favorites things: He promised to be with us forever!!! 

So ya'll let's celebrate this wonderful sacrifice Jesus did for us and the life He gave us!! Not just today but everyday!! I wish that people were this exciting about Jesus being alive all the time!! We should live ever day like it's Resurrection Day!
