What Does Such Love Mean?

“A verse from Psalm 18 proclaims the agony of Jesus: ‘The waves of death rose about me; the pains of the nether world surrounded me. In my anguish I called to the Lord and from His holy temple He heard my voice.’ (Ps 18: 5, 7)

This anguish and all that accompanied it is redemptive love and every single part of it is for our sake...for the sake of all people whether they believe it or not. How incomprehensible, how passionate is His love for you, for me, for all. This is our God who desires us to spend our eternity in Him. What follows from all this? What does this mean for our lives?

The answer is very, very personal and no one can make it for you, for me! What does such love mean for me, you?”
