But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. ~ Romans 5:8 ~
We love Him because He first loved us. ~ 1 John 4:19 ~
Can anyone love us more perfectly and in the measure with which Jesus loves us? His love fits perfectly; it fills every nook and cranny of our being. Nothing can separate us from His love (Romans 8:38-29).
I hope today, being Good Friday, finds us giving Him the honor, and the blessing, and the glory that is due Him, for there is no one else who can save as He saves, and there is no one else who loves as Jesus loves.
Father, in demonstrating Your love toward us, You gave Your only begotten Son to die for us. Jesus, You willingly walked straight into Jerusalem, knowing what awaited You and submitted Yourself to the Father’s will, and gave Yourself for us. You knew the penalty for our sin and paid it, once for all. “Thank You” does not express the what is in our hearts for Your gift of salvation, the best we can do is give You our lives and love You, “because [You] first loved us.” Amen.
