"And through Him to reconcile to Himself all things, in heaven and earth, by making peace through His blood, shed on the cross." - Colossians 1:20
The cross demonstrates the great power of God's love. It also paints a beautiful picture of His patience and perfect will.
Jesus was promised to come as the Lamb of God, because The Father had a plan to set mankind free. God offered Him as a sacrifice for our sins - at exactly the right moment. The Lord's timing is perfect.
In the garden, Jesus became frightened to fulfill God's will. He prayed to the Lord that there might be another way.
God is patient when we are honest and take our weaknesses to Him.
As He gave His life, Jesus was humiliated and mocked. Yet, He forgave his enemies and embraced God's will.
The Lord loves us, even when we act unloveable.
Whenever you feel like God is taking too long, take a moment and pray.
His patience and timing collide on the cross. It is an awesome love letter that says, "Trust me, I love you, I am always with you."
