"Were the whole realm of nature mine.
That were a present far too small;
Love so amazing, so divine,
Demands my soul, my life, my all."
Author Unknown, quoted by Charles Spurgeon
Look unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy set before Him (our forgiveness,salvation, justification and reconciliation) endured The Cross, despising the shame (not detoured by it)... Consider Him that endured (and yet still endures to this day) such contradiction of sinners against Himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds. Ye have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin (nor will you ever as He did for us). Hebrews 12:2-4
