"For God so loved the world
that he gave his one and only Son,
that whoever believes in him shall not perish
but have eternal life."
John 3:16 NIV
not counting men's sins against them.
And he has committed to us
the message of reconciliation."
2 Corinthians 5:19 NIV
On this Easter Sunday we reflect on the love of God which reaches for fallen humankind, and in the gift of Jesus Christ, provides for our eternal salvation.
The lyrics of the song "Reaching" by William J. and Gloria Gaither expresses God’s desire for us to be part of His kingdom and of His Provision to make that possible.
"His love went on longing
And His love went on reaching,
Right past the shackles of my mind.
And the Word of the Father became Mary’s little Son
And His love reached all the way to where I was.
Reaching and searching
And the longing and the reaching became Mary’s little Son
And His love reached all the way to where I was."
