How Deep the Father's Love for Us...

How deep the Father's love for us
How vast beyond all measure
That He would give His only Son
To make a wretch His treasure

Consider the implications not only of Christ's suffering as He took on the sins of the world on the cross... beyond His physical and emotional suffering as He was abused at the hands of His own special creations, beyond His spiritual suffering as all the evil in the history of the universe was heaped upon His shoulders... imagine the suffering of a timeless God to Whom there is no past and all of history is laid before Him. Imagine the love that would compel such a God to not only take all of our suffering upon Himself, but to take it from the instant He created until eternity has passed.

Consider the truly vast love of a God who would trade our eternal suffering for His own.
