Between Heaven and Earth

By Max Lucado

“God is great, and worth a thousand Hallelujahs.”  Psalm 96:4, The Message

image 

Never did the obscene come so close to the holy as it did on Calvary. Never did the good in the world so intertwine with the bad as it did on the cross. Never did what is right involve itself so intimately with what is wrong, as it did when Jesus was suspended between heaven and earth.

God on a cross. Humanity at its worst. Divinity at its best.
