“O Jerusalem, Jerusalem…how often I have longed to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her chicks under her wings, but you were not willing.” (Matthew 23:37, NIV 1984).
My Musings – Yet their (and our) unwillingness did not deter Him from willingly going to the cross. The depth of His longing measured by the length He was willing to go to secure our salvation.
My Advice – Do we share His longing for the lost? There is no greater longing or love.
