So the honor is for you who believe; but for the unbelieving, the stone that the builders rejected-this One has become the cornerstone. 1 Peter 2:7
Irony is a disciplinarian feared only by those who do not know it, but cherished by those who do. Soren Kierkegaard*
He was born in a stable and laid to sleep in a feed trough. The King of kings lived as a commoner. The Bread of Life and the Living Water chose to go without bread and water for forty days. The Sinless One was called a friend of Sinners. He who owns everything was betrayed for thirty pieces of silver. The Carpenter had nails hammered through His hands and feet. The Breath of Life had His breath taken from Him. We killed Him, but He loved us. His temporary death gives us eternal life. His red blood can wash us white as snow. Light came into the world, but men loved darkness more than the Light. That Light shines in the dark, but the darkness has not overcome it.
Today, take some time to marvel at God’s redemption plan.
