    This is such a powerful scripture! It often brings me to a place I need to be...bringing tears to my eyes. Christ on the cross dying in agony , innocent ,choosing with the deepest love possible to give his life for me, a sinner so unworthy and many times weak...I find strength and tremendous encouragement in my Christian walk in these words!!(:
