And Love Won!
"When thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin...He shall see the travail of his soul, and shall be satisified... (Isaiah 53:10-11) JESUS CHRIST, PERFECT GOD AND PERFECT MAN It is true that He emptied Himself. He laid aside the outward appearance of Deity. His Godhead was veiled. But it was there! Again and again His Godhead showed itself. As man, He slept in the boat. As God, He calmed the waves. As man He wept, As God, He cried "Lazarus, come forth!" As man He was laid in the tomb, As God, He arose. Calvary has no date. "The Lamb slain from the foundation of the world." Oh, the love that drew salvation's plan Oh, the grace that brought it down to man, Oh, the mighty gulf that God did span At Calvary! Mercy there was great, and grace was free, Pardon there was multified to me, There my burdened soul found liberty, At Calvary! "Calvary stills all questions." "The cross spells two stories: one in black - ugly black - the story of sin. Sin carpentered the cross and wove the thorns, and drove the nails - "our sin! And a love story too, in red - bright-flowing red- the story of LOVE, HIS LOVE that yielded to the cross and nails and shame for us! And only the passion of His love burning within will make us hate sin, as only HIS BLOOD can wash it out. "The hill of the Cross is the highest hill on earth, and it's significance. There hates worst and Love's best met." "AND LOVE WON." - Dr. S.D.Gordon Thank God for Calvary! There death was a defeated foe and because of that we can live eternally with Him.
