“O, How I Love Jesus”

The Love of God, the Love that loved us from before the foundation of the world, looks like the Crucified Messiah: God Incarnate becoming ransom for sinners, accepting the utter humiliation of the Roman cross. Jesus bids us to exchange our old life ruled by idolatrous “loves” for the new life governed by the love of Christ crucified.

Then he began to teach them that the Son of Man must undergo great suffering, and be rejected by the elders, the chief priests, and the scribes, and be killed, and after three days rise again.

Mark 8: 31
