It’s a Crazy Kind of Love

We are loved with this BIG love. It is a huge love, bigger than anything we have ever known or will ever know again.

It is a crazy kind of love. It is the kind of love that lays down its life for another. It is the kind of love that lays down its life for the entire world.

It is a wonderful love and a painful love.

It is a life-changing love.

It is an extravagant, unending love.

It is love that began before we were born.

It is a love that doesn’t make sense from our point of view because we aren’t worth it. We don’t deserve it. There is nothing that we can do to earn it and nothing that we can do to lose it.

It’s a love that led a man to a cross and not just to die, but to take on every sin of every man from the beginning of time until the end of time. It’s a love that won the battle over death.

This man was perfect and unblemished. He was born of a virgin and through the Holy Spirit. He is the Christ, the Messiah, the Prince of Peace, King of kings, and Lord of lords. He is the Son of God. He is God. He is the Creator, the Alpha and Omega, the Beginning and the End.

He doesn’t have to love us. He doesn’t need you or me. He chooses to love us. He wants us.

He gave us everything. He gives us everything.

Everything.

Everything we are, everything we need. It all comes from Him.

He gives us hope and peace.

He gives us light and joy.

He loves us enough that He wants more than for us to be happy. He loves us enough that He wants us to be holy.
