The Christ-God // The Cross: A Divine “Get To!”
Love, the very essence of God. A force so powerful it transcends both space and time, yielding to only one thing - freedom. Freedom is the lens through which pure love is identified, magnified and exemplified.
Nothing illustrates this truth more clearly than the cross of Christ. Jesus himself says, "The Father loves me because I sacrifice my life so I may take it back again. No one can take my life from me. I sacrifice it voluntarily. For I have the authority to lay it down when I want to and also to take it up again. For this is what my Father has commanded." (John 10:17-18, NLT)
Jesus' freedom of choice results in the greatest example of pure love known to man. "Arms wide open and a heart exposed." - Misty Edwards. This love calls out to us, not with a “have to” but with an invitation to freely participate in a divine "Get Too!"
