Love makes you do crazy things...

Today is Friday... Good Friday. And while I remember the suffering, or passion of my SAVIOR... it's not that detail I'm most moved by. It is His motive for the suffering.
the homeless man you pass on the way to work.
the rich man who passes by without thought.
the orphan with no place to go.
the cheat.
the liar.
the widow.

HIS MOTIVE WAS LOVE. Can you even imagine loving so deeply, so much that you say "Not my will but Thine?" or "Father Forgive them?" And willingly just lay down your life for another? but it was for salvation. It's the only death ever to have happened and ever will happen that offers that... salvation for us... the guilty party. "For God so loved..."

It is by His love... His example... that we are to LIVE.

Love will make you do crazy things.
