Max Lucado—He Chose the Nails

Every gift from God reveals his love. But no gift reveals his love more than the gifts of the cross. They came not wrapped in paper, but in passion. Not placed around a tree, but a cross. Not covered with ribbons, but sprinkled with blood.

Much has been said about the gift of the cross itself, but what of the other gifts? What of the nails, the crown of thorns? The garments taken by the soldiers? The garments given for the burial? Have we taken time to open these gifts? Jesus didn’t t have to give them, you know. The only act required for our salvation was the shedding of blood. Yet he did so much more.

The hill of the cross is rich with God’s gifts. So let’s examine them. Let’s unwrap the gifts of grace as if—or perhaps, indeed—for the first time. And as we touch them—as we feel the timber of the cross and trace the braid of the crown and finger the point of the spike—we need to pause and listen. Perchance we will hear him whisper: I did it just for you.

Lent sessions include:

He Chose to Be One of Us, He Chose to Forgive Us, He Chose to Invite Us, He Chose to Love Us Forever, He Chose to Give Us Victory, He Chose to Give Us Confidence
