Jesus Is The Beloved.

“In love He predestined us to be adopted as His sons through Jesus Christ…to the praise of His glorious grace, which He has freely given us in the One He loves.” – Ephesians 1:6

Jesus loves us with an amazingly great love. “He brought me to the banqueting house, and His banner over me was love.” (Song of Solomon 2:4) His sacrifice of His love on the cross with the weight of all of our sin upon Him is unmatched. “Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.” (John 15:13)

God the Father showed us His incredible Divine love by giving His one and only Son, Jesus Christ, to receive the punishment by death for our sins. His plan was in action since the dawn of time itself. “See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know Him.” (1 John 3:1)

From the very first time a sin was committed, God lovingly assured that all of mankind would not be doomed to an eternity separated from Him, by not allowing Adam and Eve to live forever in their sinful state. “And the Lord God said, ‘The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of life and eat, and live forever.’ So the Lord God banished him from the Garden of Eden…” (Genesis 3:22-23)
