Soul Snack 9/149 ... Calvary's claims!
A blessing of untold proportions is to have the consciousness of sin.
The fierceness of Jesus' mercy penetrates both bone and marrow. First it reveals, then it removes that which will keep me from His presence.
My natural instincts, my fallen heart, and my place of pride are all massive impediments to enjoying the soul enlivening and life enriching mercy of Jesus.
Flung from behind the constellations two millenia ago, His mercy was revealed unnoticed and unwelcomed upon the earth.
The cross cried mercy - the crowd cried crucify!
This choice remains today!
Heaven still throws mercy, Jesus still bleeds mercy for me.
Will I recognise my sin and rest in His mercy? Will I release His mercy and rest in my sin?
The choice of calvary is still the choice of today?
