A Father's Love

by Berni Dymet

Mark 15:13 No one has greater love than this, to lay down one's life for one's friends.

I don't know what sort of parents you had - in particular what sort of a dad you had. But I was talking to someone recently who was rejected and abused as a child.

And she was struggling so incredibly to believe in God her Father. She had nothing to understand Him through.

Her own father had abused her as a child. How could she ever come to grips with God…..the Father?

She's not alone. How do you come to grips with God?

A couple of thousand years ago, the apostle Paul put it this way….

God proved His love for us - because while we were still a long way off, busy rejecting Him, and doing it our own way - He sent Jesus His Son to die for us.

Jesus Himself said this - no greater love has anyone than to lay down his life for his friends. We live in a world of spin - I mean, talk is cheap. So many people are searching for the real thing. They want proof!

On that cross God whispered - I love you.
