Jesus Suffered for Me
That is what you were called to do. Christ suffered for you. He gave you an example to follow. So you should do as he did. 1 Peter 2:21
Long ago people used holly plants to decorate their homes at Christmas. The green plants brought life into the homes during the dark winter.
Holly reminds you Jesus came to give you life. The leaves of the holly have sharp points like the crown of thorns Jesus had to wear. The holly blossom is white, to remind you of Jesus’s purity. The blossom turns to a red berry. Red is for the blood Jesus shed for everyone’s sins.
Holly also has a bitter tasting bark. Jesus faced many bitter things when he lived on earth. When you see holly, remember Jesus loved you enough to suffer for you.
Have you thanked Jesus for loving you so much?
