Psalm 144:4 Man is like a breath; his days are like a fleeting shadow.

Beauty, Tragedy and Horror

The beauty of the cross is that if I was the only person to have existed on earth, Jesus would still have chosen to die for me.

The tragedy of the cross is that if I was the only person to have existed on earth, Jesus would still have needed to die for me.

The horror of the cross is that if I was the only person to have existed on earth, I would have been the one hammering the nails through his hands and hoisting him up to his death.

Beauty, Tragedy, Horror wrapped up together in one act of selfless love.

But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
Romans 5:8
