How much you have been loved
(Horatius Bonar, "The Revelation of Jesus Christ")
"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!
