Loved to Death

Loved to Death
-Roy Lessin, Meeting in the Meadow
I’ve been reading about Jesus’ time before the high priest and others, including the false witnesses, after He was arrested. He said nothing to defend Himself against the lies, but when asked if He was “the Messiah, the Son of God,” He spoke the truth and said “yes”. That “yes” sent Him to the cross. 
I’ve been thinking…if I was in that situation I would have done the opposite. I would have defended myself against the false witnesses and remained silent about revealing my true identity, knowing it would mean my death. I would have done everything I could do to save myself…
Thank You, God, that Your Son wasn’t like me! He loved me too much to seek a way of escape and leave me to perish! Jesus loved me to death!
He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?  Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?  For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come,  nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:32, Romans 8:35, Romans 8:38, Romans 8:39 NKJV)
