Remember the words about how God’s ‘compassions never fail. They are new every morning.’ Lamentations 3:22-23. Those lines were written in a dark place too: Jerusalem was rubble, its people enslaved and exiled. Yet God stilled his anger and sparked his compassion, and out of the darkness of slavery and defeat came a new dependence on Him.
Calvary is the story of the law colliding with grace. It’s the story of you and I not getting what we deserve. It’s the story of hope emerging from the darkness and new life thriving in spite of sin. It’s a story of our mistakes and His mercy, our debts and His ransom, our separation and His victory. Thank you Lord Jesus.
