God's Love Comforts Us

Description

The more we understand the lengths God went to in order to save us, the more we’ll take comfort in His love.

Romans 8:38-39

Our heavenly Father wants us to know how much He loves and cares for us. He has made this clear through ... 

Revelation of Himself. In Scripture, we learn that the Creator made us in His image and has a purpose for our life. We also discover that sin has separated us from the Lord, but He has a solution to our problem.

Provision of a Savior. We were trapped by our sinful nature and unable to free ourselves. That left us helpless and lost, like sheep without a shepherd (Matt. 9:36). Worse still, we were under a sentence of eternal death—separation from the Lord forever. Because of our Father’s great love for mankind, He sent His only Son to bear the penalty we deserved and to give us eternal life (Rom. 6:23). Jesus rescued us from slavery to sin and reconciled us to the Father. What we could never do for ourselves, He did for us. His provision is free to us but costly to Him.

Adoption of believers. When we place our trust in Jesus Christ as our Savior, we become children of God. There’s no longer a separation between Him and us; instead of enemies, we are family. His indwelling Holy Spirit serves as both evidence that we belong to God and assurance of His unending love.

The heavenly Father’s care for us shines brightly through the cross at Calvary—it was because of love that He sent Jesus Christ to earth to die in our place (1 John 4:9-10). Once we accept the gift of salvation through Christ, nothing can separate us from God’s love. What a comfort that is in times of need.
