Capsule for the Day
Today, we gather to listen the Word fully spoken... the Word that took flesh and dwelt among us... the Word that touched evil without becoming evil Himself... the Word that spoke fully and said loudly and clearly you are good enough for me to die for you. Today, the Word was fully spoken!
Today, life is totally given... He gave up His life, first for the soldier whose ear was cut off by Peter, He healed him. Today, He gave up His life for Barabbas to have a second chance to live. Today, He gave up His Life for us not when we were at our best, but when we were broken; sinners.
Today, Love is perfectly expressed... He loves us this much as to be dragged on the street of Jerusalem... He loves us this much as to bear the wounds by which we are healed. He loves us this much as to accomplish in His Body the work of revealing God who is Love... hanging on the Cross.
