Delivered in Delight

He trusts in the LORD; let the LORD rescue him.
Let him deliver him, since he delights in him. Psalm 22:8

To hear this cruel mockery while suffering unspeakable pain
must have been as unbearable as the pain itself.

Of course he could have been rescued,
spared all that trauma,
simply have gotten down off the cross
and walked away.

But he didn’t.
He chose not to.
He chose to stay and see it through
in order that we be delivered,
because he delights in us.

Mocking the mockery.
