A Verse A Day

"And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us." I John 4:16

This week my two-year old daughter has been asking me questions about what happened to Jesus on the cross. Why he was bleeding, why he was being punished, who hurt him. I've never explained it on this level before and quite frankly, its got me thinking.

What incredible love that He would lay down His life for us! He died so we could have eternal life, He was punished knowing the wrong we would do, the sickness we would have, the pain we would go through.

"Jesus loves me, this I know for the Bible tells me so..." If we could get a hold of the reality of this love, it would change our lives. Believe the love.
