What a Saviour!

In my reading this morning I came across this in a book by Joel Beeke. I hope that it touches you as it’s touched me.

Christ as God is an infinite and immortal spirit, yet He took a human head so it could be struck, crowned with thorns, and beaten with a reed. He took a human body so it could be ripped open with a Roman scourge. He took human arms and legs so they could be stretched out on the cross, and human hands so that they could be nailed to its wood. He took a human soul so He could feel the unspeakable pain of His Father forsaking Him in the darkness. He took our very nature so that He could bleed and die for the sins that we committed.
