"Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends."
The greatest love ever expressed was done so at Calvary. Jesus Christ gave His life willingly. He had the power to escape the cross. His Father had given Him the authority to lay down His life and take it up again (John 10:18). If we wonder if God loves us, all we have to do is look at the crucifixion of Jesus. What kind of a God would give His Son to save sinners like me? A loving God. A gracious and merciful God. A God who would go to the extreme to save the ones He loves from Hell. If you have never welcomed this kind of God into your life, now is a good time. He loves you to the extreme!
