"Love—the true kind of love, the kind of love that overflows inside of us because of who God is and who we are and who He has born us anew to be—ought to pervade every piece of our life."

Hands that made the blind see and the lame walk also reached down to wash feet and wipe tears from a broken and used woman.
Arms overthrew tables and used a whip to drive out the ones who would have us believe that God's favor and love can be bought and earned. He flipped everything upside down while loving in a way that made the world stand still and watch.
The Creator stooped low and all of heaven leaned in closer.
He wrapped himself into our frail mortal flesh to save us from the battle we could never win and walked across this worn broken earth with dust on his sandaled feet, all the way to a violent death with arms open wide to rescue us and pay the price we never could.
Death will come but it will not have the final say, for my dear friends Redemption and Grace are the orders of the day.
