1 PicADay Project: Day 66

1 PicaDay Photo # 66 (cross 2)wm

The cross was no accident.  Jesus’ death was not the result of a panicking, cosmological engineer.  The cross wasn’t a tragic surprise.  Calvary was not a knee-jerk response to a world plummeting towards destruction.  It wasn’t a patch-job or a stop-gap measure.  The death of the Son of God was anything but an unexpected peril.

No, it was part of a plan.  It was a calculated choice.  “It was the Lord’s will to crush him.”  Isaiah 53:10

The cross was drawn into the original blueprint.  It was written into the script.  The moment the forbidden fruit touched the lips of Eve, the shadow of a cross appeared on the horizon.  And between that moment and the moment the man with the mallet placed the spike against the wrist of God, a master plan was fulfilled.

“The reason my Father loves me is that I lay down my life– only to take it up again.  No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord.”  John 10: 17-18

  1. I really like what you did with this photo. Looks like you upped the contrast and made some slight colour changes, no? Whatever you did, it works. The quote under it is also very special. Nice choice.
