How cool !

God demonstrates his own love toward us, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8
Isn't that amazing!
Will anyone dare to love you like that. Perhaps parents, a few good friends might. But seriously, how many people
in the world would ever love you the way God does.

He said "He loves us with an everlasting love", a love that has no bounds, no limits whatsoever. How cool is that.

Have you ever wondered why God loves us like that? I may have an answer.
Man was made his own image. In all of God's creation, Only man was made in his image. The word man in the beginning pages of the Bible was referring to both men and women. Genesis 1:27
Angels are not made in his image, nor animals or planets or any other created thing in the whole universe.
And so when Adam, our forefather, fell into sin in the garden of eden, God made a way for man to be redeemed.
God knew this beforehand, and he made a provision for that in his infinite wisdom even before the foundations of the world. Ephesians 1

We live in this fallen world and many of us may have regrets over some decisions or choices that we made over the course of our lives. Some decisions may have been made before we knew anything about Christ and his great sacrifice for us, and some of those may have been made after we were converted.
Since God is almighty, nothing is impossible to him. If we turn to him in repentance, he can and will restore the messes in our lives. He can make us whole again. Isn't that wonderful!

The Lord is just waiting for us to come to him. He desires to bless us. His love is everlasting. Jeremiah 31:3

Won't you come to him today? let's pray.

Heavenly father, As we come to you today in brokenness and repentance, Please draw us closer to you. In Jesus name. Amen.
