When I think of the love that God has for me, I remember Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross. I can’t even fathom the thought that someone would go through the agony of being beaten and dying a painful death for the love of me. He could’ve saved himself, He was innocent and didn’t need to pay the price for my sins, but He still did; out of love. Moreover, it breaks my heart to know that I haven’t appreciated this love like I should, but I am glad that when I decided to return to His arms, I found them open.
For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. (John 3:16 NLT)
