    Extravagant Love

    February 26, 2023

    “Ash Wednesday” marked the countdown to Easter - resurrection day!  But so much was going to transpire on the way to Jerusalem.  This Jesus that is woven into every fabric of the Bible cannot be ignored.  This Jesus of the gospel demands a response from you and me.

        As Jesus made His way to the cross (Via Dolorosa) to redeem mankind through His atonement on the cross, not once did He waver.   Even as the crowd went from “Hosanna, Hosanna” to “crucify Him, crucify Him!”, not once did He waver or lose sight of His mission for mankind.  Though He was falsely accused, beaten, scourged with the “cat of nine tails”, thorns driven into His head, slapped, spit upon, carried His own cross, mocked, laughed at, and lastly crucified on the old rugged cross - never once did His loyalty or affection for mankind waver!  Jesus, the Son of Man, as the Son of God could have called thousands upon thousands upon ten thousand of angels to His side, but that call never came, instead we hear His words echoed from the cross, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do.” (cf. Luke 23: 34)  You see, Jesus came to save YOU and me, and that meant Jesus had to go to the cross.  But never forget, Jesus willingly did that for YOU, because He loves YOU!  

    Jesus’ love was extravagant.  It was absurd, outrageous, extreme and costly! - because He loves, loves, loves, loves YOU!

    Today, let’s examine ourselves and our affection for Jesus - He is worthy of the best of our time, talent and resources!  “Worthy is the Lamb who was slain” - “You are worthy, O Lord, to receive glory and honor and power.”

    The Bibles says, “these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in His name.”

    (cf. John 20: 30-31)

    How will you respond to Jesus?
