There truly is no greater Love than the Love expressed for us through Jesus Christ. Though we were sinners, He considered us friends and counted us worth dying for. There is no one else in this entire universe who can reenact this great move of Love
And we pray:
Dear God, I am always in awe when I think of the Love that shone through Your Son, Jesus Christ, who died for all Mankind so that we could be saved and redeemed from a life of sin. Father, were it not for Your Son, I would not be able to commune with You. May I never take this gift for granted, Lord. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
