Scripture at Sunrise 1.26.2011

“But God shows His love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” -Romans 5:8

When you’re tempted to doubt God’s love for you, stand before the cross and look at the wounded, dying, disfigured Savior, and realize why He is there. I believe His Father would whisper to us, ‘Isn’t this sufficient? I haven’t spared My own Son; I deformed and disfigured and crushed Him — for you. What more could I do to persuade you that I love you?’

— C. J. Mahaney, Living the Cross Centered Life (Sisters, Or.: Multnomah Books, 2006), 56 [via Of First Importance]
