The Sure Symbol Of God’s Love

Romans 5:8 - But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Imagine this scenario: Your car tire blows and u are late 4 work. At the office, u find out that someone else got the promotion u had been hoping for. Then, u receive a call from home informing u that your kitchen pipes are leaking again. Before long, u hear a voice telling u, “If God loves u so much, how come all these things are happening 2 u?”
Perhaps u are asking the same question today and wondering if God really loves u. Well, I want u 2 know that u must never judge God’s love 4 u based on your circumstances. No, look at the cross instead! The cross is the sure symbol of God’s love 4 u. It is at the cross that “God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us”.

A teenager learnt that the cross indeed spoke of how much God loves her. At one point in her life, she was contemplating suicide as the only way out of her loveless, messed-up life. She had intended 2 take some pills with a lethal dose of alcohol. She was all ready 2 die when she started clicking aimlessly on some MP3 songs on the Internet. And of all the songs that were on her screen, she picked a beautiful song written by one of our church musicians.

The lyrics of the song, sung by one of our church vocalists, spoke of being held by God’s love and being treasured in His sight. They touched this teenager. Sensing that an awesome God with His amazing love was reaching out 2 her, she abandoned her plan 2 kill herself. Not long after that, she found our church and even met the person who had sung the song. She eventually came 2 know how much God loves her and how He has demonstrated His love 4 her through the cross.

Beloved, when u look at your life and find yourself wondering if God really loves u, look 2 the cross and see God’s outstretched arms. It will remind and reassure u of how much He loves u!
