Jones: God's heart on the cross

Tuesday, May 18, 2021
    But God forbid that I should glory, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom the world is crucified unto me, and I unto the world.
    —Galatians 6:14 (KJV)
    God, to redeem us at the deepest portion of our nature—the urge to love and be loved—must reveal His nature in an incredible and impossible way. He must reveal it at a cross. At the cross God wrapped his heart in flesh and blood and let it be nailed to the cross for our redemption.
    ... E. Stanley Jones (1884-1973), Conversion, New York: Abingdon Press, 1959, p. 69 (see the book)
    See also Gal. 6:14; Rom. 1:16-17; 1 Cor. 1:22-24; 2:2; Phil. 3:10-11
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, grant me a heart like Yours.
