“Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. But God demonstrates his love for us in that, while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”

~Romans 5:7-8

  4. Love absorbs the suffering caused by power. This is such a great point by Phillip Yancey. Any of us could be on either side of this equation at some point. This certainly makes me want to be more merciful.

    I love the verse, and the idea behind it, however, I have a question about the Yancy quote in the picture. Is he saying that God gave up His power?

    Amen! And Christ’s suffering cannot be overemphasized. It was excruciating. Unspeakable.

    Great quotes here. But I might add, only God can ’empower’ you to love like that.
