John 3:16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only Begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him shall not perish,but have everlasting life.
The Cross is the greatest love story in the history of the world! Jesus Himself declares this in John 15:13-Greater love has no one than this:to lay down one's life for one friend's.
For God so loved. Genesis 1:1-In the beginning God! Everything starts with God. God is the Gospel. John 1:1 - In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
God is Alpha and Omega, The Beginning and The End!
At the foot of the cross! God summons us there on today. Will you come? It is at the cross where love, grace and mercy can be found.
The cross is a divine picture of God's promise to offer His only Begotten Son as a sacrifice for the atonement of all of our sins.
At the cross is where the vail was torn and where man was granted direct access to God through faith in Jesus Christ. At the cross is where we were reconciled back to God, being no longer separated from Him.
At the cross, where I first saw the light and the burdens of my heart rolled away.
Yes, it was at the cross where old testament prophecy was fulfilled. Isaiah 53:3-10 He was despised and rejected by mankind, a man of suffering, and familiar with pain.Like one from whom people hide their faces he was despised, and we held him in low esteem. 4 Surely he took up our pain and bore our suffering, yet we considered him punished by God, stricken by him, and afflicted. 5 But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed.
Indeed, only true love can be found at the cross!
It was at the cross where enmity between God and man was abolished. It was at the cross where we became joint heir with Christ. It was at the cross where death lost it's sting. It was at the cross where the grave had no victory. It was at the cross where sin and death was defeated by Love.
It was at the cross where the penalty for our sins were paid in full. It was at the cross where we were Redeemed, purchased by the blood of the Lamb, therefore, it was at the cross where Jesus declares "IT IS FINISH"!
If we could only grasp the cross, we would really see what true love is. Love that proved itself in death.
The Cross! The "proof" of God's love for you and I.
Yes, the cross may appear to be foolish to you and it may make no sense to you. God knows it still does not make any sense to many today for He said it in 1 Corinthians 1:8-For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.
God's love for us may not be fully understood in it's depth and that is ok because God is calling us to believe in Him and not understand Him. We will never understand Him for He declares that His ways are not our ways; His thoughts are not our thoughts. We just have to believe!
The only way to accept this love that God offers to you on today is to believe by faith in what took place on that old Ruggard Cross over 2k years ago on a hill called Calvary, Golgotha's hill. Not understand it all, but believe it all.
Real love does not come without a price. Love for you and I was paid with the price of Jesus "blood". Yes, He shed His blood just for you and I.
Will you accept Jesus love on today? It is all free! Ephesians 2:8-9- For It is by His grace that we are saved through faith, and this faith was not from you, but it is the gift of God.
You can search the whole world over and I can guarantee that you will not find a greater love than Jesus Christ. One who loves you unconditionally.
Agape Love is calling you to the cross on today! Do you hear Him? He has His arms stretch wide, awaiting your arrival. Come and meet Him at the cross! He WILL be your final search so look there is no need to look any further! Jesus is it!
God bless and do tell the Lord thank you for putting "Love" on display for the whole world to see just how much He loves us.
