Love

But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5:8, NIV)

Love.

Nothing brings so much joy, hope, peace, or emotional healing than love.  In fact, nothing except love can really bring any of these things.

But God demonstrates his own love . .

God can demonstrate anything He wants, in fitting with His nature (He is good).  He can demonstrate His justice to us.  He can demonstrate His righteous anger to us.  He can demonstrate His wrath to us.  He can demonstrate these things, and He does.  But isn’t it incredible that this is not all He demonstrates to us?  No, He chooses to demonstrate–as His masterpiece–His love for us.

God’s heart is for the wicked to turn to Him and for mankind to be saved.  And because of His heart, He demonstrates His love to us.

If you want to know what love is, read 1 Corinthians 13.  There you see what God has demonstrated towards us.  It is the perfect summary of Christ on the cross.

But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans 5:8, NIV)
