Love So Amazing, So Divine – A Good Friday Reflection

April 6, 2012

Once upon a time, a man and his wife were captured by warrior king. When they came before him, the monarch asked the man “What will you give me if I release you?” “Everything I possess,” the man answered. “And if I release your wife?” “Your majesty,” he replied, “I will give myself.” The king was so moved by his devotion that he freed them both. As they returned home, the man said to his wife, “Wasn’t the king a handsome man!” His wife replied, “I didn’t notice. I could only keep my eyes on the one who was willing to give himself for me.” 

Jesus said, “The Son of man came to give his life as a ransom for many” (Mark 10:45).

My dearest Lord Jesus, thank you for giving your life to set me free. May I always and only keep my eyes on you, the One who so loves me.
