God’s Amazing Love

God’s wrath is upon the whole sinful world, but, “God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.”

“Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already.”

Outside of Jesus, the wrath. Inside of Jesus, the love. The love of God is, He would die to put you in Jesus, so He can love you as His children. It is only in Christ, we are not sinners. It is only in the Son, we are children of God. God’s love is amazing only in the context of God’s holy wrath.

We don’t truly understand God’s love until we’ve realized that we don’t deserve it. He died for the enemies He hates, so we can become someone He loves. That’s the love of God.
