Amazing Love

One more Julian of Norwich quote (I think):
And in these words: If I (Jesus) could suffer more, I would suffer more, I saw truly that if he could die as often as once for every man is to be saved, as he did once for all men, love would never let him rest until he had done it.  And when he had done it, he would count it all as nothing for love, for everything seems only little to him in comparison with his love.  
Do you hear in that Christ's love for you?  If convincing you of God's love meant that he could die for you - just for you - he would do it out of love.  The suffering seems little to Christ in comparison to the love.

Amazing love, how can it be
That you my king would die for me?
