When we consider what the Lord Jesus did for us, we see the magnitude of it—He paid for the sins of the world. We see the magnificence of it—we were enemies and while we were yet sinners, He died for us. The majesty of it—the Creator died for the creature. And the mystery of it—why would someone so holy die for a world of messed up sinners like us?
