O God, stamp eternity on my eyeballs…

Christ and Him crucified

Christ Crucified
The greatest love is this, that one man laid His life down for His friends. I observed once the Watoto choir singing about Jesus as friend. Do you know Him as friend? The greatest love is this, two parts: that He died for us and that He in turn offers His death to us as our own. Who’s bleeding back would you refuse? Who could look at a dying man, rejected by the masses and ripped to shreds by whip, nails and thorns and reject Him as he reaches out and says, “this is for you”? They could reject him who have not looked upon themselves as needing salvation from anything or deserving of a savior. There is none of Gods love in them. Could anyone keep spitting on that man if there had been keen revelation within that they were the ones filled with sin and not Him?

Till His return…
