Deep and Wide - Part I

How deep is God's love? The Old Testament makes it clear that God's throne is one founded on righteousness and justice and He can have no fellowship with sin. Yet God reached all the way down to sinful people by sending Christ to reconcile us to Himself.

"God put on Him (Christ) the wrong, who never did anything wrong, so we could be put right with God." (2 Corinthians 5:21, MSG)

As we approach the time that marks Jesus' final days on earth, contemplate the cross and it's significance. Think of the vertical beam as standing for the depth of God's love reaching down to you through Christ. Offer God your humble praise today.
