+We want you to know that God has an infinitely passionate, undying love for you!
God loves you so much that He gave Jesus, His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him.
Everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God’s glorious standard. When we were utterly helpless, Christ came at just the right time and died for us sinners. Now, most people would not be willing to die for an upright person, though someone might perhaps be willing to die for a person who is especially good. But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners!
Most of us are not used to this kind of love. God’s kind of love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance. Love will last forever! God is love!
A relationship with God is not about rules and regulations. He is not watching us from far away, waiting for us to mess up so He can squash us. Fellowship with God is a close, personal relationship with our Father based upon His selfless, unconditional love.
+THE LOVE AND SACRIFICE OF JESUS CHRIST HAVE GIVEN US A BRAND NEW LIFE OF LOVE, PEACE, FREEDOM AND JOY!
