Crucified_Jesus__the_face_by_DevCageR.jpg“He loves you. God knew you were going to be messy. God knows that you are going to screw up. That’s what the cross is all about. You are going to fail, and stumble, and feel dirty and awkward. The whole point of the cross of Christ is that there be this mighty picture of His love and pursuit of you despite you. The cross is necessary because of you but it is also the picture we have of how far God is willing to go because He loves you. “
