There’s this place God meets us at, for some of us, it is our treasure spot when we are at the end of ourselves- at the end of our soul. For others this treasure spot may not come for months, even years, but eventually we all touch it, some seek it, and we always, always find it when we look. Some will cross the threshold, others may never cross over, but it is in the reaching into the depths of our soul – God finds us, and we find Him. Jesus hung on the cross, absorbing all of mankind’s sin, all the emotion of the entire earth in the past, present and future, all of it. He touched pain, heartbreak, every single person’s heartbreak including yours and mine. He touched the painful edge we all go to, where a piece of our heart breaks off and He catches it as it falls. He’s the epitome of pain and grace, healing and saving of sins and His heart has and does, and always, will. Carry. It all.
Jesus, He had to go to the cross, to the end of it all to carry us all.
Have you met Jesus at the cross?
