He was God.
All that divinity.
All that perfection.
All that holiness.
Why the suffering?
He knew why. He knew what for.
He knew His purpose. He understood.
But, it didn't ease the suffering. The agony.
It didn't ease the burden or lighten the load.
It didn't remove the pain or the burden of guilt and shame.
Yet, He did it anyway.
He endured. On a tree.
While He endured, He encouraged. He provided. He blessed.
No ridicule or scorn. No reviling. No anger. No wrath.
He endured the cross until the end.
Because He loves us. He loves us so much that NOTHING ELSE MATTERED.
Unto death. Into life.
Endless amazing love.
Endless amazing grace.
The ultimate in sacrifice.
DO WE LOVE HIM AS HE LOVES US?
So much so that nothing else matters. NOTHING.
Physical death. Obedience. Sacrifice. For Him. For us.
Because He matters most. His ways. His desires. His purposes.
We have been called to a holy calling with divine purpose. With no fear.
'Why?' we ask.
We share His calling. With no fear. Because of His perfect love.
Here. To suffer. Now.
According to His purpose.
He layed down His life. All of it. We have been called to do the same. Every day.
To know what He knows. To love as He loves.
May we not ask 'Why?' Only 'How?'
Glory be to our Savior, Jesus the Christ.
May we live to magnify Him. May our lives glorify Him.
For HIS GLORY!
Thy Kingdom come quickly.....!
