He Was Willing

Just wanted to highlight another blog’s post today.  Ordinary Pastor (formerly Irish Calvinist) had this to say about Jesus.

Listen, it would be one thing to be qualified to be the Savior. He then is different than us and worthy of all praise. There is no question here. But he is more than eligible, he was willing! He was willing to come and put on humanity. He was willing to subject himself to breathe in the sin polluted smog of this world. He was willing to walk through the sewer of the corrupt religious system of apostate 1st Century Judaism. Further, he was willing to obey the Law perfectly. This he did not because he had to himself and for himself, but for us!

Well said and the rest of the post is well worth the read.
