The Bleating of Sheep

In the last analysis, God expresses His love for us not by putting another to suffer in our place, but by Himself taking our place. He meets the whole cost of our forgiveness in Himself, exacting it of Himself. He demands the ransom, He provides the ransom. He becomes the ransom. Herein is love.
