Those who seek victory over enemies....look not upon the cross.
Those who seek personal glory...look not upon the death of our Lord.
Those who seek to be lifted up ... look not upon the crucified Christ
But those who seek to see the folly of God’s love... look.
those who seek God in suffering...look
those who seek what it looks like to be human and to be God...look
Here is our King. Here is God’s glory. In the tortured flesh of our God-Man Jesus. This flesh on which we feast. This blood which we drink. The broken, the poured out from which there is true wholeness, true shalom.
Hidden in the suffering, God is revealed.
