To death

Have you ever had someone say, "I'll love you to death!" 

It dawned on me, in a big way, that Jesus is the one who LOVED US TO DEATH.  Death on the cross, to make the way possible for us to be restored to a love relationship with Him again!

Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die.  But God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.  Rom. 5:7-8 NIV

For Christ also suffered once for sins, the just for the unjust, that He might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh but made alive by the Spirit
1 Pet. 3:17-19 NKJV

It's a universal fact, we all crave true love.  Nothing is better than relationship - we were CREATED for it!  First with Him and with one another.  Man will remain unsatisied in his pursuits, until he receives the free gift of forgivness from his sins (paid on the cross) and a turning from a 'self' centered life to a 'Christ' centered life.

  1. Because Christ did love us to death,yes,I now can finally 'see' the Kingdom of Heaven. Thanks for being today's encouragement and for the reminder to never take my salvation for granted. Jesus gave me the gift that keeps on giving. That He would die so I might live; wow!
