John 1:29
The next day he saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, “Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!
Dear Jesus-
There are so many attributes full of wonder to describe You. So many ways in which we try to use simple words to explain or describe Your true character. The ultimate result is that we come up short trying to describe the fullness of Your grace, mercy, and unwavering love for us.
We begin with our relationship with You as the Messiah of the world.(John 20:31).
Conventional wisdom would say that it takes a quantum leap to go from a quietly sleeping baby in a manger in Bethlehem, to an Almighty Savior on a Cross on Calvalry’s Hill.
It’s takes faith to believe that a God would send His only begotten Son to bleed and die on The Cross for us. For. Us.
It takes an avalanche of faith to comprehend how a King would exchange His Crown, the Royal Diadem, for a Crown of painful thorns.
The reality is that it takes being aware of the hurricane of Love that our Father has for us. His Love is so Great. So Wild. So encompassing that it crashes right into us.
The Love of the Father who took on the sins of the world so that we could obtain an eternal redemption through Him forever.
“It is The Cross, my only plea, the Blood He shed, delivers me, My Savior’s arms are open wide, a Love so great …The Cross of Christ”!!!!
The Cross of Christ-
