"The heart of salvation is the Cross of Christ. The reason salvation is so easy to obtain is that it cost God so much. The Cross was the place where God and sinful man merged with a tremendous collision and where the way to life was opened. But all the cost and pain of the collision was absorbed by the heart of God."
All the cost and pain of the collision was absorbed by the heart of God. Not us. He took it all and gave us everything. Because He loves.
When you betray me and reject me and leave me, I will never stop loving.
When you whip me and beat me and accuse me, I will never stop loving.
When you ignore my face in nature, when you invent theories for the creation that I sustain, I will never stop loving.
When you call yourself my child but allow the world to catch your eye and your heart and your attention, I will never stop loving.
When you chooose yourself over my son, I will never stop loving.
When your needs, your desires, your fame are more important than my glory, I willl never stop loving.
When you do these things, my child, my heart hurts and yearns for you to run to me, your Father.
I never stop loving.
"He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; by his wounds you have been healed."
I Peter 2:24
