Amazed at the Powerful Love Jesus Offers Us

That for us, a sinner. Jesus suffered and died. We stand amazed at the depth of Jesus’ love.

I Stand All Amazed.

I stand all amazed at the love Jesus offers me,
Confused at the grace that so fully He proffers me.
I tremble to know that for me He was crucified,
That for me, a sinner, He suffered, He bled and died.

( Charles H. Gabriel, 1985)

Reflection. At the foot of the cross we stand — AMAZED! Jesus suffered and He died — CRUCIFIED. On the old wooden cross — CRUCIFIED. Jesus offers us His grace, His forgiveness and His LOVE.

Scripture Reading: For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified. (1 Corinthians 2:2, ESV)

At the foot of the old wooden cross. We stand our hearts are breaking. Alongside Jesus’ gentle and His weeping mother, Mary we stand. Our souls are torn. Our hearts are drained of all hope. Our eyes are filled with tears of such sorrow and such despair. We dare look up. Many of His beloved friends have fled in dreaded fear. We remain faithful. To the One who hangs here in our stead. In between two thieves. One cross in between two others. On the hill of Golgotha. Our Lord, our beloved Jesus is — CRUCIFIED.
