But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him over for us all, how will He not also with Him freely give us all things?
God loved us even before we loved Him. While we were still openly and willingly sinning Christ came and took away that sin through his death and resurrection so that we may be forgiven. God did not spare his son but gave him up for us.
“Because of Jesus we are beautiful in our father’s eyes”
God loves us so much that he wanted us, the real us. He doesn’t care what our pasts hold. He has made away for the old to pass and the new to come. That way was Christ and his sacrifice for us. God didn’t spare any expense to have us back in fellowship with him. He gave up his only son so that we might gain eternal life. He is willing and able to give us much more. We must turn our hearts to him to receive those blessings.
Close your eyes, and be thankful that you have received heaven’s kiss.
Lord, thank you for your love. Thank you that while I was still sinning you saw me and loved me. You gave me a way to reconnect and fellowship with you. Thank you for sending your son to redeem me through his blood. Amen
