Why does the #crossequalslove?
We live in an increasingly secularised world that is willingly rejecting an ancient message – God has never stopped loving you!
I’m not sure why this is so offensive to people. Maybe it’s because it has been diluted with mixed messages from some of God’s representatives? Perhaps we are sceptical of a love that has no demands in return?
Sadly, most of us need to run far away from God and live our own lives in such a destructive way before we ever stop and look heavenward.
If we come to our senses we will hear God whisper the words, “I have never stopped loving you”.
The normal response of a person who has been overwhelmed by the good graces of God is to share that same message. The relentless love of a God who saves us can not be kept to ourselves. We must share it.
Why does the cross equal love?
Because God sent His Son (Jesus) into the world, not to condemn the world but to save the world through Him.
The cross equals love because we would be lost without His intervention.
