The Greatest Demonstration....

Tonight, in our family bible time we read 1 Corinthians 13, the love chapter. And two other passages we went to were Romans 5:8 and Galatians 2:20. Romans 5:8 says, "But God demonstrates His own love for us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us." Notice "demonstrates". It's present-tense. Means that it's happening now. We can know we are loved because He laid down His life for us. Becuase of what happend then, we can know we are loved now.

Also, it says at the end of Galatians 2:20, "Who loved me and gave Himself up for me." This word "Loved" speaking of the cross! Not that he doesn't love us now, he does; but that the greatest demonstration of this love was on the cross!

All For His Son's Glory!

I got your point in the second paragraph after reading it a few times, but it was a little difficult to tell who was talking and what he was talking about from only a segment of a verse. I know the first part of that verse had little to do with your point, so it may be good if could you clarify that a little bit. But you made a good point. Other than that minor issue, it was a pretty good post.

That is a very encouraging post. Romans 5:10 goes on to say that He loved us while we were His enemies. That is amazing love, that Jesus willingly died for me to reconcile me to the Father, because of their great love for me. Truly God is glorious in loving those least deserving of it, and in His Sovereignty bringing us to repentance and faith according to His own will by the Spirit. Thank you Lord!
