Blessings of the Cross

O LORD my God, You are very great; …You who laid the foundations of the earth. – Psalm 104:1 , Psalm 104:5

God’s love did not begin at Calvary. Before the morning stars sang together, before the world was baptized with the first light, before the first blades of tender grass peeped out, God was love.

Turn back to the unwritten pages of countless eons before God spoke this present earth into existence, when the earth was “without form and void” and the deep, silent darkness of space stood in stark contrast to the brilliance of God’s glory and His cherubim and seraphim.

Even then, God was love. Before the worlds were created, He knew all about us and the need we would have some day for Christ to die for us. So in His love

He chose us in Him before the creation of the world. – Ephesians 1:4

God does not change — and neither does His love. He loved you before you were born… He loves you now… and He will love you forever. Will you love Him in return?
