Come and see ... Come and listen ... Give thanks ...

"Come and see what God has done ... Come and listen, all who fear God,  and I will tell you what he has done for me ... Let everyone give thanks to You, O God." (Psalm 66:5,16; Psalm 67:3).

If we want to see what God has done for us, what's the best place to look? - The Cross of Christ. This is where we will see how much the Lord has done for us. This is where we will see how much the Lord loves us. 
When we come to the Cross of Christ, we come to look and listen. From the Cross, Christ speaks to us some wonderful words. 
Here are some of His words:
 * "My God, my God, why have You forsaken Me?" (Matthew 27:46 and Mark 15:34).
Here, we see Jesus taking our sin upon Himself.
 * "It is finished" (John 19:30).
Here, Jesus declares that He has completed the work that needed to be done for us to be saved.
 * "Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do" (Luke 23:34).
Through Jesus' death for us, we receive the forgiveness of all our sins.
 * "Truly, I say to you, today, you will be with me in Paradise" (Luke 23:43). 
Jesus died for us so that we might live with Him - forever. 
Let us give thanks to the Lord for all that He has done for us. Let us give thanks that He still speaks to us of the great salvation, which comes to us through his death on the Cross for us.
