What Brought Christ to the Cross?

What brought Christ to the cross? How did this appalling injustice happen? It should have been something monstrous and inexplicable blown in from the darkness that was guilty of that horror.

Yet the haunting terror of it is that it was brought about by ordinary mortals like ourselves, kind and likeable in many ways. It was set up by the quite ordinary, decent and respectable little sins of decent and respectable people, by the kind of thing in which we are all apt to drift.

Age by age the Lord Christ is crucified. We too have crowded eagerly to Calvary and nailed him to a cross. Yes, even we.
