A Revelation Of God's Love

Do you question God's great love,
That He wants to speak to you,
That an intimate relationship
He has in store for you?

Do you feel it's just mere words,
That God is distant, doesn't care?
Though creation He may order
But of you He's unaware?

Have you pondered, have you wondered,
Why to earth God sent His Son?
Why the privileges of heaven
Would be left and God's will done?

Only love could be the reason,
For this only Jesus came,
If we needed proof from heaven
This alone should love proclaim.

How better to communicate
Then God to come as man,
No other means could He have used
That would the chasm span.

Became a man to man reveal
The depth of love God feels,
This man, God's sacrificial Lamb,
To whom we all shall kneel.

"This is how much God loved the world: He gave his Son, his one and only Son. And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life. God didn't go to all the trouble of sending his Son merely to point an accusing finger, telling the world how bad it was. He came to help, to put the world right again." John 3:16-17 (The Message)
