“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”
We went astray, and God had a plan. His response to man’s rebellion was definitely not “human” for His reaction was to develop a plan to redeem Mankind.
The result of our rebellion was to be cut off from God’s presence, and to be cut off from eternal life; the price of rebellion was very high indeed. While this was a necessary development from God’s point of view, it was not the end; not by a long shot.
God loved His creation so much that He was willing to take extraordinary steps to make peace; He would send His own Son to die. Now this was not just some dramatic move by a hero from a cheap novel, but rather a way to pay the price for sin (rebellion) which was death. (Romans 6:23) Jesus paid this price in the most costly of ways… by dying on a cross.
Have you ever had the feeling that nobody loves you; that you are all alone? If you have ever felt this way, or if you doubt God’s love, just look at the cross where He suffered and died for you.
