Considering that Easter is right around the corner and this week is the Passion week for Catholics as well as a lot of Protestants, Max Lucado’s He Chose the Nails is quite appropriate.
In this book, Max invites us to stop and ponder about the meaning of things that we usually forget to notice: the soldier’s spit, Jesus’ clothes that were divided among the men who crucified Him, the sign above Jesus’ head, the other two crosses. All these demonstrate God’s love.
I did this for you.
That’s one thing that will never cease to amaze me. He did all of this for me. Jesus went on this tough and scary journey for me. For you.
Like the other Lucado books, this one is written simply, but so powerfully that there are times when you simply stop reading and marvel… and it feels as if you are getting a second wind and everything in you blossoms, past hurts forgotten because you can’t stop smiling – He loves you!
This book is especially meaningful to me because the cross on the cover was made by my pastor and left at Max Lucado’s office. The nails were taken from the attic at my Church when we were rebuilding it.
