We have all read, heard, or watched a love story where the love of two people lasted all the way to the end. A true love story, but what about the greatest story ever told of love unto the end? What about the love of a Savior that never faltered or failed even when He was beaten and crucified to pay for the sin of the ones He loved? What about the truest love of all unto the end?
“Now before the feast of the passover, when Jesus knew that his hour was come that he should depart out of this world unto the Father, having loved his own which were in the world, he loved them unto the end.” John 13:1
Even when His body was being ripped apart, He loved us. Even when He hug upon a cross dying in our place, He loved us. Even when His Father turned His back on Him, He loved us. Even when the thirst became too much, He loved us. Even when He suffered the utmost shame as He took upon Himself our sin, He loved us. And as He lifted up His eyes to heaven declaring it all to be finished, the price to be paid for sin was complete, He loved us. He loved us even unto the end.
“Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father:” Galatians 1:4
He died to make a way for us to be reconciled to God. He paid the penalty of our sin. He gave Himself for us, He loved us until the end. He rose from the dead that we might live in Him.
“And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth. Unto him that loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood,” Revelation 1:5
He loves us until the end and one day He will carry those who have accepted His love and trusted in the work that He did upon the cross home to be with Him !!! Truest of all love until the end . . .
