It is Written – A Journey Through the New Testament (3)

jesusisthereasonI saw a child the other day at church say, “God loves me soooo much” and then she spread out her arms side to side as wide and as far as she was able to indicate that as far as her little fingers tried to stretch, God loved her just a little bit more than that. 

She gets it!  God does love us “soooooo much”!  I hope you (as an adult) understands that too, after you read these verses as we continue our journey through the New Testament.
