“He Chose the Nails”

In preparation for Easter, this week I have been reading Max Lucado’s, “What God Did to Win Your Heart, He Chose the Nails.”  This has touched my heart very deeply, leaving each day’s reading with a shattered heart and tearful response.  I can hardly comprehend the amazing love that would endure such great suffering on the cross “For Me”, and “For You.”

“Linger on the Hill of Calvary.  Rub a finger on the timber and press the nail into your hand.  Taste the tinge of cheap wine and feel the scrape of a thorn on your brow.  Touch the velvet dirt, moist with the blood of God.  Allow the tools of torture to tell their story. Listen as they tell you what God did to win your heart.”   Max Lucado

This excellent video summaries the book!

I am eternally grateful,
