Mislead and tainted, humanity sought to...

Cripple a threatening ministry,
Ruin a dangerous reputation,
Undermine a blasphemous claim,
Crush the hopes of faithful followers,
Insult the concept of a personal god,
Furnish themselves with a 'public example' of the consequences of rebellion and,
Yield to their own rules their own way.

But good and awesome in His nature, God...

Created an intercessor for sin's price
Redefined the concept of 'God' from a distant deity to that of Personal Savior,
Unlocked heaven's doors for His trusting children,
Crushed underfoot Satan's plans for man's demise,
Introduced humanity to His ultimate compassion for them,
Freely gave, opening the invitation of His love to...
You. He thought of you as He bled, and rose, and won.
