It Was Love

  By Max Lucado

“I lay down my life . . . No one takes it from Me.”  John 10:17-18, NKJV

Jesus knows the meaning of the phrase, “It’s just not right.”

For it wasn’t right that people spit into the eyes that had wept for them. It wasn’t right that soldiers ripped chunks of flesh out of the back of their God. It wasn’t right that spikes pierced the hands  that formed the earth . . .

Was it right? No . . . Was it love? Yes.
