What Wondrous Love is This

But he was pierced for our transgressions;
he was crushed for our iniquities;
upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace,
and with his wounds we are healed. Isaiah 53:5

What wondrous love is this that God would be made flesh and dwell amongst a broken creation, to be despised and rejected by His own, the king of heaven and earth mocked by His servants, tortured and nailed to a cross? This is the love of God, that He should give grace toward those of such lowly and de-meritted intentions. Christ was incarnated to save those just like us. To re-orientate us within a new creation. To save the world by an unyielding sacrificial love.
Tiepolo - Christ Carrying the Cross
