I've been teaching this week in my classes about the profanity of the cross and the specifics of the crucifixion. Inviting them to journal at the conclusion of our teaching time and it just strikes me as incredible profound. I became aware of the sacrifice of Christ about 18 years ago and it still engages passion within me. My King died for me. unthinkable. I matter to him. unthinkable. But I'm so glad. He has filled my life with meaning and it compels me to live a life of mission. Thank you Jesus.
