His pain our gain

So I see this shirt today that says His Pain Our Gain, a shirt about Jesus dying on the cross, no big deal I know we have seen it before. However lately I have been looking at this a little deeper about this, yes Jesus went to the cross for our sins, and paid a debt that could not be paid any other way, and without Jesus we wouldnt have a way to the father, however I started thinking about sin, and how we are forgiven if we believe, and if we ask for it with all our heart, and I started thinking why do we sin, everytime I sin its like the nails are being driven into his hands again, everytime I dont stand up for him and deny I know him he is being crucified again, everytime I see someone use his name in vain, or mock him and I say nothing Iam putting the crown of thorns on his head, everytime I choose the things of this world Iam the one stabbing him in the side, for some reason it really hit me the other day thinking about that shirt, I mean when someone lets us down we are hurt, sometimes angry, and sometimes it takes us time to forgive, how much pain does he feel when we sin, we arent worth the price he paid, thankfuly he is a merciful God, one that is loving, and forgiving to all that believe in his son, so the next time you are faced with a tough decision, or tough spot, choose to honor him, and glorify him, live as a beacon of light so that others will see him working in you, dont do it for yourself, do it for him I mean out of all the people he is the one I dont want to hurt.
