it was also for us, to whom it will be credited, who believe in the one who raised Jesus our Lord from the dead, who was handed over for our transgressions and was raised for our justification. Romans 4:24-25
Our salvation was in the hands of Jesus in order for us to know the truth. The truth that he was sent by God, the truth that by God he was raised from the dead. Only a loving God would go to such lengths to bring us back to him, for us to realize that he loves us.
When we think about it, how we go to great lengths ourselves to show someone we love them. We purchase flowers to give an offering of love. We buy gifts to give, to celebrate a special occasion, or just to show our love. Some go to even greater lengths to show someone their love by doing unusual things. We often read of these, like a billboard, or a note written in the sky, or some unique way to capture our loves attention. So if we go to these great lengths, it shouldn't be hard to understand the love God has for us and the lengths he went to show us through his Son.
