For God So Loved The World

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. (‭John‬ ‭3‬:‭16‬ NIV)

The past couple days I have had a sick little one. That means we have had lots of cuddle time. My youngest daughter loves to snuggle and cuddle and be loved on. During the night she was warm with fever and had been coughing and she asked me if I would hold her in the recliner in the living room. Of course I said yes. As I was holding her I just had it come over me how much I love my two daughters and how blessed I am to have them. Then I was just overwhelmed thinking of the love God has for all his children. It is so much love it's sometimes too much to even comprehend. 

I just kept thinking of how God gave the ultimate sacrifice for us all. He gave his one and only son so we could have eternal life. I can't even imagine how that must have felt for God to send his son for people that would turn their back to him, to choose to disobey him, and deny him. 

That is true love. A love that is like no other. If you ever feel like no one loves you think of that. There is no other love like God sending his only son to die on the cross for your sins. 

I'm blessed to say that I am a child of God. Although I am so undeserving Jesus hung on that cross for me. No love is greater.
