"I cannot understand this amazing love. For centuries men have pondered the question…. “Why would One such as this suffer and die for one such as I? ”Why would He trade in His kingly crown for a crown of thorns? Why would He give up His place in the Heaven of heavens shrouded in glory to be wrapped in this putrid flesh? Why would He exchange angels worshipping at His feet for men pounding nails through them? The angels sang His praises. Men mocked Him and spat upon Him. In His former estate, the entire heavenly host gave to Him…worship and adoration. Here, the creatures of His creation took from Him….always wanting food, or a miracle, or health.... They took everything they could from Him…even His life."
