O Divine Lover

Behold! the eternal Son of God loves an ugly, deformed, miserable creature, a crawling worm, a condemned criminal, an insolvent debtor, a rebel against heaven, a daring sinner, a drudge to hell, a slave to lust, a captive of Satan, a prisoner of the pit!

This is love indeed!

How ardently, O Divine Lover! should my soul go out after You! I long for that glorious day, when I shall mourn Your absence no more when, admitted into Your presence, I shall delight in all Your love, and feast on all Your charms, world without end!

[James Meikle]

Romans 5:6 ... For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly.

John 3:16 ...  For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

1 John 4:10 ... Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.❤
