The comic strip Baby Blues currently has a story line about how the baby of the family, Wren, needs tubes put in her ears. Every time her father hears the word “surgery”, he faints! This father’s love is so deep that it causes him great distress to even think about his child having to face an operation.
Think about how much pain it must have caused God to know that his one and only Son, Jesus, would have to be crucified to pay for the sins of humanity.
Thankfully, God not only loves Jesus, he loves us too! “But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”—Romans 5:8.
