It's really hitting me this Good Friday.
Oh, that cross!
We are so blessed that He went to that cross!
That wretched, terrible cross!
That beautiful, wonderful cross!
Without that cross, there is no hope for us.
Without His sacrifice, we are lost.
It was His plan, and He did it for us.
You and me.
What was it that maintained Him throughout the torture?
What was in His mind, that he could endure what He went through?
When he was dragging that cross, nearly lifeless, what motivated him to press on?
When He closed His eyes, hanging from that cross, bloody, bruised, humiliated, and splayed out...what was He thinking about?
You and me, friend.
He did it for us.
