But God, who is rich in mercy; because of the great love he has for us, even when we were dead in our transgressions, brought us to life with Christ (by grace you have been saved). Ephesians 2:4-5
Our Father has great mercy for us. We cause so much strife with others through our actions, words and deeds. Yet he loves us deeply, even when we are dead to him. We are of his image, and so much a part of him. What parent does not love their child, so it is with God whose love is far greater. He purposely gave us his Son to show us the truth, that no matter where we travel, what direction we go in, God loves us. He is love, pure and simple, no holds barred. He gives unselfishly to us.
