"Whatever else we may say about it, the atonement fulfils the Jewish principle that only one who has been hurt can forgive. At Calvary, God chose to hurt."
I find those words deeply moving and they remind us that God chose to HURT for our brokenness. When Jesus asked his Father to forgive us, it was from his place of incredible pain.
Luke 6:28 - Bless those who curse you. Pray for those who hurt you.
Living in Grace
