A Wedding Proposal on a Cross

 

Most people would think a public execution is a lousy place to ask someone to marry you. But that’s where God chose to make his intentions known to you and me. The Bible is clear that the cross is where Jesus bought our salvation with His blood. But there was something else, something rich, deep, and private that Jesus was also doing. It was there that He popped the question to His bride, the church.

Instead of getting down on one knee, He climbed on a cross. Instead of offering an engagement ring, He offered His hands and feet to cold, cruel spikes. Instead of having folks ready to pop corks, He had an angry mob, smug clergy, and fair-weather friends who had abandoned Him. But He gladly did it, because He was so in love with the church.
