Who delivered up Jesus to die?

Not Judas, for money; not Pilate, for fear; not the Jews, for envy; 

but the Father, for love!

Octavius Winslow (1808-1878)

“…when Jesus knew that his hour had come to depart out of this world to the Father, having loved his own who were in the world, he loved them to the end.” (John 13:1)

How deep the Father’s love for us,
How vast beyond all measure,
That He should give His only Son
To make a wretch His treasure.

Painting: Bird’s-Eye View of the Forum; Jesus Hears His Death Sentence by James Tissot (1836-1902)  Hymn: from How Deep the Father’s Love for Us by Stuart Townend

About Jill

I'm a wife, mom to three beautiful children, and currently work at two jobs for which I'm very grateful -- part-time at my kids' school, and as children's ministry director at Redeemer PCA in Athens, GA, a place our family treasures as our church home. It's been thirty years since the Lord saved me, and to this day I'm astounded at His steadfast love shed upon unfaithful me. My hope would be that I might speak and write in ways God would use to soften hearts toward Him, that we would together be enamored by the glorious beauty of Jesus and awakened to His love unimagined. Thanks so much for reading!
