Evil and Love by orchardblog

Currently I am reading a book that explores the wonder of the Christian experience. I thought I would invite you in on what I’ve been meditating on for the last couple of weeks, an excerpt from the book.

“Look at the Cross, now. Evil is seen for what it is — all the vileness in the human heart is there in the face of the perfectly pure. Evil is not covered up [at the Cross]. See again the marvel of God’s love that offers forgiveness of such evil. But even as forgiveness is offered, evil and love are seen in their full force in the triumph of one over the other. Only in the Christian faith will you see the reality of evil and love concretely expressed even as forgiveness and hope are made possible by the sure grace of God.”

Tell me your thoughts regarding this quote…
