This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.
(1 John 4:10 (NIV))

Who is the one person in your life that you love the most? Perhaps it is more than one person. If you have children, then you are probably in this category of having multiple people that you truly love. You are not alone.

What would you do to save them from certain death? Would you be willing to sacrifice your own life in exchange for their life?

That is exactly what God was able to do for the people that He loves the most!

God sent His Son, Jesus, who was God made man, to give His life for those that He loves the most. You are probably thinking that Jesus came as an atoning sacrifice for anyone and everyone. That is correct. You have discovered who God truly loves. He loves everyone so much that He was willing to make the ultimate sacrifice for each and every one of us.

Who is it that you love the most? Multiply that by the largest amount that you can imagine and then multiply that by the number of people who have ever lived or will ever live. You still will not begin to fathom the amount of love that God has for those whom He loves.

Who is it that God loves the most?
