It's Not Over

"We see his smile of love even when others see nothing but the black hand of Death smiting our best beloved.” -Charles Spurgeon

It must have felt like the very end for Christ's followers as they saw His badly beaten and bloodied body on the cross.  After all, they had just watched the man that they knew as the Son of God and Messiah be mocked, spat on, and tortured by the Roman Officers.  Any hopes for a Savior seemed to be over.  I can only imagine Christ looking down with love on His creation that had persecuted Him, as He said, “It is finished.”  Little did everyone know that what He really meant was that it was not over and only just the beginning.

But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us (Romans 5:8, NIV).
