The love of God surpasses ALL understanding.
Romans 5:5-8 God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us. You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. . . . But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
I can only imagine how well that God (and Jesus) knows us. For there is not a human being on this earth that would want to die for a stranger. However, God sent His ONLY Son here to earth, not just to live on earth, not just to set an example of how we should live, but to die for US: for you and for me. He purposely gave forth a son in order that the Son’s purpose in life was to justify US…through His death.
As a parent, I can only imagine giving my life for my child that I know and love dearly, but God gave His life (through His Son) for US. THAT’S LOVE!
If you haven’t stopped to Thank God today for what He has done and continues to do for you, now is the time to do it!
