The Sacrifice God Made For You

April 23

Yet it was the will of the LORD to crush him;
            he has put him to grief;
when his soul makes an offering for guilt,
            he shall see his offspring; he shall prolong his days;
the will of the LORD shall prosper in his hand.

Isaiah 53:10

A man took a job in the South operating a drawbridge over a river. One day, he brought his young son with him to work so he could see what his daddy did for a living. The two were talking when the man looked down at his watch and saw the 3:00 pm train from Memphis was nearly due to arrive.

He was about to pull the lever when he saw something that horrified him. His son had wandered off and became caught in the gears that lowered the bridge. He could go help him, but the train was too close and would derail if the bridge didn’t go down right then. So with tears in his eyes, he lowered the bridge and crushed his boy.

With a tearstained face, that man watched as the trainload of passengers went safely over the bridge, not one of them knowing what had transpired and the sacrifice that father made to save their lives.

Our Father in heaven made a very similar sacrifice, crushing His own son so that we may have life. Don’t go today without stopping to thank Him for that amazing act of love for you. Praise God that through the death of His Son, you can have eternal life!

About PowerPoint

PowerPoint Ministries is the radio and television broadcast ministry of Jack Graham, pastor of Prestonwood Baptist Church — a nearly 37,000-member church with three campuses in the Dallas and North Texas region. Through PowerPoint Ministries, Dr. Graham offers practical, biblical steps on how to tap into God's power for successful Christian living.

About Jack Graham

PowerPoint Ministries is the radio and television broadcast ministry of Dr. Jack Graham in Plano, Texas. Dr. Graham is the pastor of Prestonwood Baptist Church, one of the nation's largest, most dynamic congregations.

When Dr. Graham came to Prestonwood in 1989, the 8,000-member congregation responded enthusiastically to his straightforward message and powerful preaching style. He challenged the Prestonwood family with a vision for a larger outreach, and in 1999, the church moved from its North Dallas location to a new 7,500-seat auditorium in west Plano.

Thriving with more than 33,000 members, Prestonwood continues to grow with seven weekend worship services, four midweek services, about 300 Bible Fellowship classes for all ages, and multiple outreach and community ministries that reach thousands. In 2006, the church added a second location, the North Campus, in a burgeoning area 20 miles north of Plano. And in 2011, Prestonwood returned to its roots—beginning its third location, the Dallas Campus, about two from miles from its original location.

Dr. Graham has served two terms as president of the Southern Baptist Convention, the largest American Protestant denomination, with 16 million members and as president of the SBC Pastor’s Conference.

He is a noted author of numerous books, including You Can Make a Difference, Lessons from the Heart, A Hope and a Future, Life According to Jesus, Are you Fit for Life? and Powering Up. Courageous Parenting, co-authored by his wife, Deb, is based on their experiences as parents. Dr. Graham’s passionate, biblical teaching is also seen and heard across the country and throughout the world on PowerPoint Ministries. Through broadcasts, online sermons and e-mail messages, he addresses relevant, everyday issues that are prevalent in our culture and that strike a chord with audiences worldwide.

Dr. Graham was ordained to the Gospel ministry in 1970, and has a master of divinity degree with honors and a doctor of ministry degree in Church and Proclamation from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.
