"The Greatest Love"

"Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends."  John 15:13

I woke up the other morning thinking about the love of God.  The love He has for us is not "ordinary".  It is supernatural.  It is not "conditional" is it unconditional.  It is not a "lip service" love, it is a love demonstrated.  The cross was all about love.  On the outside it looked like a place of suffering, a place of pain, a place of shame, and a place of humiliation,  and it was all that, but more importantly and behind all the suffering was a love so great it can not be fathomed with the human intellect.  So great it has endured for thousands of years.  So great that nothing greater has been able to top or out do it. 
Take time today, especially if you are feeling unloved and unwanted, and just look at the cross.  Find a picture of it, or maybe you have one in your home.  And just stare at it and think about what Jesus did for you on it.  Don't get a "frilly" one that is very ornate.  Find a plain, simple and rugged one.  As you stare at it, and take a long time to do so, and while you are thinking about it begin to say to yourself over and over-- Jesus loves me; He did this for me; thank you, Jesus for loving me.  This may seems odd to you to do this, but some days we just have to remind ourselves. 
Have a great day.  The cross was all about love.  Remind yourself that Jesus loves you!
