Don’t let this verse pass by you too quickly. Jesus, Creator of the Universe, King of kings, Lord of lords, who has been from the beginning and always will be, willingly submitted himself to be rejected and ridiculed by his creation. He became an object of hatred, a target for our jeers. He became our scapegoat as He took upon Himself every sin and evil that has ever been committed. Jesus loved us so much that he took everything unlovable from us and became unlovable to us in order that we may remain His true love forever.
Let that sink in for a moment. Jesus didn’t just want to love you for a few years. He didn’t even want you for just a lifetime. Jesus wants you for eternity! Now that is love! That is a promise that you can count on. You never have to doubt whether His love will be there for you. It is true for all eternity. Thank you Jesus!
