Christ does not want you to think of His cross and amazing love sacrifice, in terms of something He did 2,000 years ago, in a far away land. He wants you to think of His amazing love sacrifice as a right now event; as something that comes to your street; As something that comes to your house; And as something that He personally witnesses to you by His Holy Spirit. God does not mean for His love to be an event of history that you think about, in ancient terms. But He wants to personally minister that Dynamic love directly to you; and for you to receive it, intimately inside your own heart.
The love of Jesus is more precious than even the love of your parents, siblings, or mate. The love of Jesus is designed to be the deepest, most intimate and precious experience of your life.
The work of the Cross is not something that God wants you to see from a long time ago and a long distance away. But He wants you to see the work of that Cross in your own life, right now! The love of Jesus is personally aimed at you and I, to directly transform us, in the deepest and most inner sanctuary of our heart. He desires that we be the temple of His Spirit! The Cross is for you, today!
