DAILY READINGS: Leviticus 4:27-5:13; Psalm 104:1-35; Acts 27:1-26

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16, NKJV

Out of love, God provided salvation for sinful men before man ever fell. Out of love, God planned from eternity to give His Son. God’s love is eternal, unconditional, changeless. It reaches out to all persons regardless of their status or condition. In love, God offers freely eternal life and heaven to any sinner who will respond to Him. The saved soul loves Him because He first loved us. —Doug Kazen

The cross reveals thy love below; But better soon our hearts shall know,
When we behold Thy face above. The fullness of our Father’s love.
—C. A. Bernstein
