The Cross of Love

Love so Wide

Love so Long

Love so High

Love So Deep

That you my Jesus would willingly lay down your life for a wretched and rebellious sinner like me washing away my sins and removing my guilt and shame. Your love rescued me from the darkest pit and set me free. Thank you, my precious Savior, for enduring the cross that I might live. I am humbled by the magnitude of your love and grace for me.
