Flanigan, Jim

How voluntary was the death of our Lord Jesus! Five times we read that He “gave Himself.” He gave Himself for our sins (Galatians:1:4). He gave Himself a ransom for all (2 Timothy:2:6). He loved the church and gave Himself for it (Ephesians:5:25). How blessed it is to know that He gave Himself for us (Titus:2:14). But what a personal privilege to be able to say that He loved me and gave Himself for me (Galatians:2:20).
