sinful humanity His only begotten Son, that
He might be pierced for our transgressions,
crushed for our iniquities. At the cross God
writes the New Covenant in Christ’s blood.
God’s Son becomes God’s means through
which God Himself satisfies His wrath
fully, fulfills His Law utterly, and releases
His truth and grace like a deluge.
The Lord meets each of us at the cross,
that lodging place on the way. He would
kill us except that, instead, He does that to
His Son, His one and only Son. And then
He touches us – feet, hands, head, heart,
all – with His Son’s blood.
By this one act all things are reconciled, and all things made new.
And the best part is not that the Lord
lets us alone after that.
It’s that He never lets us go.
Surely, He is a bridegroom of blood
to me. FT
