Reality: He was beaten. He was disfigured. He was crushed.

Reality: He was crucified. Real nails. Real hammer. Real flesh. Real blood. Real pain.

Reality: There was nothing beautiful about this selfless act this man named Jesus did.

Reality: He did it for you. He did it for me. He did it out of sacrifice. He did it out of obedience. He did it for our sins.

Reality: He died for us so that we might have life everlasting.

Warning: The following video is very graphic. But while this is just a portrayal, it really did happen -- 2008 years ago. And nothing can change the fact that WE were the reason he suffered. WE were the reason that he gave up his life. HE is the reason we are forgiven of our sins. HE is the reason we can have life eternal.

The reality is, that without Christ in our lives, without his forgiveness, without the incomprehensible death that he experienced, we would not be able to reach God. He "crossed" that gap for us. And now, he stands quietly, calling you, knocking at the door of your heart, patiently waiting for you to answer.

If you don't know Jesus as your savior, won't you take a moment accept him into your life?
