The cross is the greatest revelation of God’s love for the most unworthy beings — you and me. No parent in their right mind 2,000 years ago or today, would send his only child, his royal child, his perfect child to grow up and live for 33 years in the worst place possible — a place like the south side of town, the slums, where everybody is on drugs. That’s what God did. Do you think He’s crazy? He did what no other parent would do. Why? Because He’s not just any parent. Yes, His love for Jesus is beyond our comprehension, but so is His love for you and me. He says that He gave His Son into the world so that we can be saved and live forever with Him.
I call it more than love. It’s something so profound that finite minds cannot grasp it with a word.
