As we think through the bright beams that emanate from the glory of God, one of the most warming is His love. God loves you. And the Bible states that “The one who does not love does not know God, for God is love” (1 John 4:8 NASB).
Well, a lot of people profess to love … and yet talk is cheap. God demonstrates His love to us. God acts and gives to others with know return needed. He needs nothing from us and yet lovingly acts on our behalf. God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8 The fact that Christ Jesus took upon himself the sin of the world and died in our place is a magnificent truth! Jesus paid your penalty.
That demonstrates, it truly shows that God loves you. The Father gave the Son. The Son gave Himself. God loves you. Jesus died to pay the penalty for your sin.
