1 John 4 Verse 10

10 In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.[1]

            As you read through scripture a common theme develops; man pulls away from God. We find our desires fulfilled in the world instead of God. As Israel does this, punishment follows, drawing them back to God for a period of time. Through all of this, God does not stop loving us. His love for us is so great that He sent His only Son to die for us on the cross. God sent His Son to be the propitiation, the pleasing sacrifice for our Sin. Jesus stood in place and turned away the righteous anger of God by satisfying the demands of judgement for our sins. I can think of no greater love than this. Through Christ, we have salvation, and eternal assurance that our sins have been paid for.
