With lash, thorns, nails and spear, we opened bloody wounds in the body of Christ while the Son of God was human, alive, tender and vulnerable. By looking at them, we only see the effects of our our brutal wickedness. To see more, we must look through them. The bloody wounds are windows. They reveal to us the most important aspects of the nature of God. God's love for us did not fade as we tortured Him nor die when we killed Him. Both He and His love for us survived. His survival proved that God is omnipotent. Our fiercest enemy, Death, has no power over Him and, hence, over us. The survival of His love for us proved something much more significant about God than omnipotence. The survival of His love for us proved that God's love for us is indestructible. Through the bloody wounds we opened in the body of Christ, buckets of blood spilled and, on this cataract of blood, His life exited His body. However, not a drop - not a drop - of His love for us spilled. His heart stayed filled to the brim with love for us.
