The Beauty of God
“He said, “It is finished!” And He bowed His head and gave up His spirit.” -John 19:30
At the cross, we see God in all of His beauty, for He is LOVE.
At the cross, we see the vast depth of love for His creation, for God so LOVED the world, he gave his one and only son.
At the cross, we see the greatest act of LOVE this world would ever know, for He is the Good Shepherd who lays down his life for His sheep.
At the cross, we hear these last words of Jesus as he breathes out his last breath,
“IT IS FINISHED”
All the wickedness of mankind and all the goodness of God met at the cross. It is at the cross that we see the very essence of God’s beauty. We see the very nature of who God is.
Jesus and the cross is what God has to say to His creation.
The cross says, I LOVE YOU THIS MUCH!
Jesus and the cross is what God has to say to YOU about how He LOVES YOU, even IF you have yet to receive His great LOVE. God never changes! He is the same yesterday, today and forever! He is LOVE and has always been LOVE and that will never change. The question is will you receive His great LOVE for you today?
