THE LOVE OF OUR HEAVENLY FATHER
“For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Romans 8:38,39 KJV
Frederick M. Lehman wrote “The Love of God”. “The love of God is greater far Than tongue or pen can ever tell; It goes beyond the highest star, And reaches to the lowest hell; The guilty pair, bowed down with care, God gave His Son to win; His erring child He reconciled, And pardoned from his sin.”
We have a loving Heavenly Father Who loves us so much He gave His beloved Son to die on the cross for our sins. How it must have hurt Him and broke His heart when He had to turn away from His Son. Jesus had taken our sins on Him and God can’t look at sin. I believe God cried when His Son died.
What kind of love is this that God would give His Son to die for us? It is a compassionate and unconditional love for you and for me that caused God to open His heart to us. If you ever doubt you are loved remember the cross and the unconditional love for you when Jesus died on the cross for your sins.
Heavenly Father, we come to You with grateful hearts for loving us so much You gave Your beloved Son to die for our sins. We love You, Heavenly Father. We love You, Jesus. We love You, Holy Spirit. I pray for every person who is hurting. Please comfort and encourage them. In Jesus’ Name, I pray. Amen.
