Quote for Today

“Romantic love is blind to everything except what is lovable and lovely, but Christ’s love sees us with terrible clarity and sees us whole. Christ’s love so wishes our joy that it is ruthless against everything in us that diminishes our joy. The worst sentence Love can pass is that we behold the suffering which Love has endured for our sake, and that is also our acquittal. The justice and mercy of the judge are ultimately one”
– Frederick Buechner

The Love of God in Christ is not blind to our condition, if it were, there would be no need for the Christ of Calvary. Love atones for sin, suffers for and with sin and ever seeks our freedom from its deathly power. No greater love…
