9. By this God’s love was revealed in us, that God has sent his only born Son into the world that we might live through him. 10. In this is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son as the atoning sacrifice for our sins. 1 John 4:9-10 WEB
The greatest love story of all time is not the typical one of boy meets girl or the such. It is a story of eternal proportions. It is the story of the Almighty God creating souls for Him to enjoy intimate contact with. We were to be the children that would inherit a place in His Kingdom. Then we turned to our ways. We strayed from Him and willingly placed the distance of sin between us. However, He would not let go of us. He loved us. So, He has worked for ages on His plans to restore and redeem. In Christ, God made a way for us to be together with Him again. This time, those of us who love Him back, get the chance to stay in His loving arms forever! Pray that we may enjoy the sweetest relationship of all!
