The Amazing Love of God!

After Adam and Eve disobeyed God, He could have wiped humanity off the face of the planet and begun again with another couple, but He didn't. Nor did He completely destroy mankind when the heart of mankind was revealed to be continuously evil. He sent a flood, but He saved eight people. God also threatened to kill all the Israelites because of their sin during the time of the Exodus from Egypt, but He didn't because Moses interceded on the people's behalf.

Amazingly, God still loved mankind!

Think about it!

But mankind consists only of sinners. Each one of us is guilty. Each one of us has committed sin and each one has broken the law of God. There is a penalty and it must be paid by each individual that is guilty of sin. That punishment is death and eternity in Hell. And we are helpless to do anything about it. We are hopeless and without remedy.

Yet, God still loved mankind!

Think about it!

There was only one way in which the penalty for sin committed could be satisfied and yet save mankind from death and Hell. God was the only one who could provide the remedy. Only a holy sinless human being could die on behalf of all mankind and thereby pay each person's penalty. God himself would provide the means of salvation. Yeshua, God, was sent to earth to be born as a human being, yet would never sin so that He could pay the penalty for our sin. He willingly died on the cross, taking our sins upon Himself. He paid the penalty, paid our fine!

Yes, God still loved mankind!

Think about it!

Mankind now has the ability to claim that the penalty for sin has been paid. Each one of us, by faith in the work that Yeshua did on the cross, can claim that their penalty has been paid in full. Each one that does so will never have to pay for sin by dying spiritually and spending an eternity in Hell.

Is there any doubt, that God still loves mankind?

Think about it!

And take advantage of the free gift of salvation that God has made available by His own sacrifice. Repent of your sins and trust in Yeshua's death and resurrection. Make Him Lord of your life.

Know that God still loves you!

Think about it!


  1. Right on! If I lived 50 lifetimes I will never totally understand God's grace & love. I just know it's a gift given while we are yet sinners ...

    "For when we were still without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die; yet perhaps for a good man someone would even dare to die. But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, having now been justified by His blood, we shall be saved from wrath through Him. For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life. And not only that, but we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received the reconciliation." Romans 5:7-11
