“But God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us!” Romans 5:8
The CROSS is the pledge and standard of divine love!
The Father’s love is here–for God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son! Christ’s love is here–the love that passes knowledge, the love which many waters could not quench, nor the floods drown; love to the uttermost; love grudging no toil, nor pain, nor weariness, nor reproach–for us!
Believer! If you want to know how much you have been loved, look to the cross of Jesus! That meets and answers all our doubts!
– Horatius Bonar
