“For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son, so that everyone
who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life.”
— John 3:16
What Jesus did for us at the cross is the most powerful thing that has ever happened in all of history. God manifested Himself as a man, coming into the earth to live a perfect life on our behalf and then going to the cross to pay the penalty so that all sin for all time and all people could be forgiven. Truly astounding.
As Christians, we are often so understandably overwhelmed by what Jesus did for us at the cross, that we can sometimes miss the profoundly simple truth of why He did it – LOVE!
The “what” of the cross is forgiveness of sin. The “why” of the cross is love. Jesus did the amazing thing that He did so that you would know this amazing truth: YOU ARE LOVED!
Isn’t that glorious?
Isn’t that wonderful?
Meditate on that for a moment.
Jesus did all that He did here on earth, and at the cross, for one simple reason. He loves you!
Our God is so completely, totally, and utterly in love with you that He came to die on the cross to restore you to holiness in Him, so that He could be restored to relationship with you. He did it all for you, because He couldn’t stand the idea of spending another moment without you. He did all that He did at the cross so that He could once again be in relationship with you. That is how in love with you He is. That is how deeply, fully, and overwhelmingly loved you are.
Yes, God loves the world. Yes, God loves everyone. Yes, He loves the Church. And He loves the sinner. That’s all true. But here is the message of the cross, it is the most profound revelation in all of Christianity, and it may be the most important thing you ever hear: God loves YOU!
The cross declares throughout all time – in a voice louder than any lie of the enemy or the chatter of any tribulation in your life – the truth that you are loved. Look to the cross today. Celebrate what Jesus did for you. And rejoice over why He did it!
The message of the cross is that YOU ARE LOVED!
Make these simple but powerful decrees over yourself each day this month:
 God loves me.
 God wants relationship with me.
 I am a friend of God.
 I know the voice of my Lord, and He knows mine.
 I grow closer to God each day.
 Thank You, God, for loving me so richly, radically, and ridiculously!
 Thank You, God, for the privilege of not only serving You, but also of knowing You!
