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.
