There are times we wonder why He would love us. Why would He die for us? Why would He have mercy on us? Why would He leave His wonderful throne of glory and come to this earth as a little babe in a lowly manger? Why would he endure the constant murmuring and ridicule of the Pharisees? Why would He allow Himself to be taken by Roman soldiers, beaten within inches of His life, and be delivered to a cross? Why did He not call legions down from heaven to save Himself? Why did He not fight back? Why did He not tell Pilate who He really was? Why did He not defend Himself against the false witnesses? So many questions. All of them answered by one simple fact. He loved us so much He was willing to give His life as a ransom for our sins. All to bless us!
Receive this blessing today on your life. As the Holy Spirit has given it to me, so I penned it for you this day. Know that He loves you more than you can possibly imagine and that He wants was best for you. Know that not matter what you are going through right now He will make it come out for good. Know that He will never leave you or forsake you. Know that he will speak to you in a still small voice every hour of every day. Know that everything is going to be okay and be blessed!
For God so loved the world that he gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life.
