" I have loved you with an everlasting love; therefore with lovingkindness I have drawn you."    
                Jeremiah 31:3

       Many people have difficulty believing God is a God of love.  "How could He be," they ask, "When the world is filled with so much suffering and evil?"

       Its not an easy issue---but if you want to know the reality of God's love, look at the cross.

       It was His love, divine love, that caused Christ to endure the cross and endure the despising  shame.

       He raised not a hand against His enemies and it was His love that kept Him from calling great legions of angels to come to His defense.

            It was His everlasting love in a moment of agonizing pain, which caused Him to pause and give hope to a repentant sinner, who cried, "Lord remember me when you come into your Kingdom"

      It also was His great love that showed, when He lifted His voice and prayed, "Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do."

        Does God love us? the answer is yes----and the proof is the cross.
