Life is full of paradoxes.
We hurt the most those that we love.
We laugh until we cry.
We live for the moments that take our breath away.
And yet all these paradoxes – these seemingly contradicting statements that reveal a deeper truth – don’t compare to the profundity of Christ’s life on this Earth.
He loved the unlovable.
He, the perfect One, kept company with sinners.
He lived to die.
In His death, He brought life.
And in bringing us life, He demonstrated His love.
A love that led Him to death but which itself never dies.
An undying life displayed on a Cross.
The love of our Savior.
