This Is Love

"For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son,
that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life." John 3:16
Nail pierced hands, a wounded side
This is Love. This is Love
The Holy Heart was sacrificed
This is Love. This is Love
I bow down to the Holy One
I bow down to the Lamb
I bow down to the Worthy One
I bow down to the Lamb
The Son of God died for us
This is Love. This is Love.
He walked the hill and bore the cross.
This is Love. This is Love.
(Terry Butler & Mike Young)
This is from Beth Moore's Breaking Free devotional for yesterday:
"God had only one arrow in His quiver. The most perfect arrow ever to exist - a masterpiece, priceless to Him. Cherished far above all the hosts of Heaven. Nothing could compare. His only heritage. His only Son.
But, as God looked on a lost world - desperate and needy and in the clutches of the enemy - His heart was overwhelmed. Though they had sinned miserably against Him and few sought Him, God had created them in love and could not love them less. So Love reached sacrificially into the quiver and pulled forth the solitary arrow. Yes, God so loved the world."
