This Is God!

When the crucified Jesus is called the ‘image of the invisible God’, the meaning is that this is God, and God is like this. . . . The Christ event on the cross is a God event. And conversely, the God event takes place on the cross of the risen Christ. Here God has not just acted externally, in his unattainable glory and eternity. Here he has acted in himself and has gone on to suffer in himself. Here he himself is love with all his being.

Jürgen Moltmann, The Crucified God

The Cross of Christ is the penetration of God into that unholy area where we would least expect him and, if the truth be known, where we least want him. God has entered into the loneliness of our suffering and the self-hatred of our sin. And he has not come as judgment but as acceptance. The Cross is the communication of God’s care but it is not a message from the outside. God loves us by receiving our lives into himself as we experience them — torn and broken. The Cross is God loving us from the inside.

John Shea, Stories of God

May I never boast of anything except the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.

Galatians 6:14

Thank you for this short but so powerful images of the love of God. I tried to rate it at 5 stars, but as I did , somehow stopped as 1.5. Thank you again. I will share with friends who also would need to hear and appreciate the depth of Our Savior's love.
