Calvary's Love

His redeeming, unfathomable love for me is summed up in four words:

"Then they crucified Him." Matthew 27:35

There is no way Jesus could have been crucified unless He allowed it, which He did. The nails didn't hold Him there, but rather, my sin. For me -- He died and now lives and reigns. What a Savior!

Jesus paid it ALL, ALL to Him I owe; Sin had left a crimson stain, He washed it white as snow!
AMEN! 'Twas not the nails that held Him to the Cross, but His Love for me

It's fascinating what He did on the cross, so that we could spend eternity with Him! Happy Easter!

He did it all for you, for me, for everyone you saw this week. Yet how are all those people going to know that? We must tell them!!!!
