GOD LOVES US
“Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not.”
1 John 3:1 KJV
Pastor Robert Cullinan wrote a beautiful hymn about our Heavenly Father “Our Father’s Love”. “Our Father’s love, so vast and boundless— His arms of mercy opened wide— Has sent His Son on earth to save us Through nail-pierced hands and wounded side.” What love God has for you and for me.
Pastor Ray Overholt wrote one of my favorite hymns “Ten Thousand Angels”. “Upon His precious head they placed a crown of thorns; They laughed and said, "Behold the king." They struck Him and they cursed Him and mocked His holy name. All alone He suffered ev'rything.”
Jesus died for your sins and He died for my sins. How it must have hurt God when He had to turn away from His Son as Jesus was hanging on the cross with the blood flowing down His body. Jesus had taken our sins on Him. God is holy and He can’t look at sin. Thank God for the redeeming blood of Jesus.
Have you confessed your sins and allowed Jesus to save you? Pastor Robert Lowry wrote the hymn “Nothing but the Blood”. “Nothing can for sin atone, Nothing but the blood of Jesus; Naught of good that I have done, Nothing but the blood of Jesus.” Jesus loves you so much He died for your sins.
