Love Written in Red
God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life (John 3:16, NKJV).
For God so loved you that He gave His Son, His only Son, the Son Whom He loved—He gave heaven’s most precious Treasure—He gave everything He had—in order to offer you eternal life.
Do you doubt the love of God? Why? Because of the bad things that He allows to happen to good people? Because of the unfairness and injustice and unkindness and misery and suffering and pain and cruelty of life? Some questions we won’t have answers for until we get to heaven. But one thing we can know for sure is that God loves you and me. How do we know that? We know it by just looking at the cross where He proved His love for the world that mocks Him and ignores Him and despises Him and scorns Him and rejects Him.
We look at the cross and see “I love you” written in red—the red of Christ’s blood.
