An interesting story out of Russia about a man named ‘Shakur’, and how he was stabbed by his girlfriend 13 times before he could get away from her and seek medical treatment. She was arrested and stood before a judge for sentencing when Shakur suddenly asked her to marry him, then asked the judge for leniency! (photo)
Although we don’t know why he would do such a thing, we also don’t know why Jesus Christ (the Creator of the universe) would go to the cross for us, seeing that mankind ‘stabbed’ Him in the back with their sin.
The Russian man, proposing to his girlfriend after she nearly killed him, is a really interesting story; but how much more fascinating is the gospel story… how the Creator God came to this world and died for our sins on the cross of Calvary, was buried and rose again on the third day! Hallelujah!
Romans 5:8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
