Operation: Reconciliation

From the archives

He knew I deserved the Crown of Thorns yet He let it rest on His head.

He knew I earned the flogging in the streets yet He took my place.

He knew I could never settle the wages of my sin or tear the veil on my own, yet He wanted a relationship with me that would last for eternity.

He knew that I, the wretch, would need a Savior, so He hung on a tree, pierced for every single transgression He knew I would commit.

He knew that I , the powerless, would need the power of His resurrection, so He conquered death, leaving my sins in His grave and giving me freedom to live life abundantly.

He wrote the greatest story of reconciliation the world will ever know in His very own blood... for ALL the people, all for LOVE. May you be reconciled this Holy week, this Holy life to your Savior and also to each other - all for Love.

"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perserveres. Love never fails." - 1 Corinthians 13:4-8
