True Love in it’s most Radiant And Glorious Form!

Today, some 2,000 years ago, a Man clothed in majesty and splendor, covered in the blood of our sins, took the full weight of the worlds sin then, now, and forever upon Himself; and chose to be the perfect offering in our place, and died for our Salvation. That we may be one with Him and sit near Him, guiltless, in His heavenly Kingdom. He has loved us with an everlasting love but “All have turned away; all have become useless. No one does good, not a single one…” (Romans 3:12) “But my people have stubborn and rebellious hearts. They have turned away and abandoned me.” (Jeremiah 5:23) “Israel is a foolish and stupid nation, for its people have turned away from God…” (Isaiah 27:11) 

Even though, Gods people turned away from God and His people turn away from Him daily and hourly still, and even though our sin bears the penalty of death  He still sent His son to die in our place! And He says:
“I will heal their backsliding,
I will love them freely,
For My anger has turned away from him” Hosea 14:4

We have done NOTHING  to deserve life, nor certainly LIFE IN CHRIST! Yet, Jesus, in His loving kindness and boundless mercy and grace, loves us still. He loved us enough to hang on a cross for 6 hours knowing all the sins that we would commit against Him and still chose to love us and save us. THANK YOU FATHER. ALL I CAN OFFER IN RETURN IS MY HEART. I LOVE YOU JESUS.

Surely our griefs He Himself bore, And our sorrows He carried; Yet we ourselves esteemed Him stricken, Smitten of God, and afflicted. But He was pierced through for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; The chastening for our well-being fell upon Him, And by His scourging we are healed. All of us like sheep have gone astray, Each of us has turned to his own way; But the LORD has caused the iniquity of us all To fall on Him.… Isaiah 53:4-6

Come close, listen to the story
About a love more faithful than the morning
The Father gave His only Son just to save us

The earth was shaking in the dark
All creation felt the Father’s broken heart
Tears were filling heaven’s eyes
The day that true love died, the day that true love died
When blood and water hit the ground
Walls we couldn’t move came crashing down
We were free and made alive
The day that true love died, the day that true love died

Search your hearts, you know you can’t deny it
Lose your life just so you can find it
The Father gave His only Son just to save us

Jesus is alive
He rose again
