Does Jesus really love you? I say look to how He agreed to be crucified. Look at the old rugged cross. Look at every thorn that punctured His brow. Look at every mark on His back, every lacerating scourge. Notice every hair of His beard plucked from His cheeks by cruel fingers. Consider every bruise which heavy fists made upon His head. Jesus said, "I love you" by all the spit that landed on His face. By every drop of sinless blood that fell to the ground. Jesus showed His love for you through every breath of pain which He drew upon the cross. By every beat of His loving heart, Jesus, while dying on the cross, stretched out his arms, and said, "I love you this much." Then He died for you.
