J. Vernon McGee- Many years ago down in Houston, Texas, when a boarding house caught on fire, a woman broke through the lines and went into that house. It collapsed, and she was burned to death. The headlines read: “Poor Wretch Dies: Suicide.” Later the newspaper printed an apology. Why? When workman were digging around in the rubble, they found in a back room, a little iron bed, and in that little iron bed was a baby, her baby. She entered that burning building to save her baby. She wasn’t a suicide. She loved that baby and wanted to save her child. In much the same way, the Lord loves us and he is a willing redeemer. He wants salvation for us and if that was the price to pay for our salvation, even though he scorned it, he willingly paid it.
