Filled with infinite love in inexpressible humility, Jesus accepted the supreme abasement of the Cross.
“He was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed” – (Isaiah 53:5).
What can we offer Our Lord in return for His immeasurable sacrificial love poured out for us on the Cross? He Himself answered this question:
“A new commandment I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another” (John 13:34–35).
