Wondrous Love

So I woke up this morning grumpy. Lousy attitude, stinky outlook.
I scrolled down my FB homepage, and our friend Elrond had posted this video. Talk about a dose of attitude adjustment!

Visual depictions of Christ's suffering for us can never compare with even the physical aspect of what He endured. And then there was the real suffering, the suffering that purchased my pardon - separation from the Father while He bore the eternal consequences of my sin (and that of everyone else for all of time...). It is literally beyond my comprehension, but videos like this remind me - give me the tiniest grasp of the most minute scrap. What wondrous love, indeed!

I love that the video complier included scenes depicting the resurrection. HIS sacrifice was enough! The work was done! Salvation, so far from free of cost, and yet freely available to me.

What a blessing this was. If the reminder of Christ's sacrifice won't fix an attitude ....
Thanks for posting this. And thanks to Elrond.

Me+Viewing of Video=Lousy Mood Gone!
