God SO loved!
"For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son." John 3:16
"God SO loved!" No plummet has ever yet been found capable of sounding the depths of that 'so' — "God SO loved."
When the Holy Spirit wants us to know the great depth of God's love, He points us to Calvary. Standing at the foot of that cruel tree and gazing at that glorious Sufferer — you learn the deep love of God as it can be learned in no other spot!
Mercy came down from Heaven — and picked up a poor vile sinner lying at the gate of Hell!
"Herein is love, not that we loved God — but that He loved us, and sent His Son to be the atoning sacrifice for our sins." 1 John 4:10
