Introduction

Sometimes life gets us down. We may fail in our efforts. We may lose loved ones. We may experience chronic sickness or handicaps. We may not experience the love that we expect from those close to us. We may be treated unfairly by our enemies. And the list goes on. It is easy under such circumstances to feel that no one loves us. Have you ever felt that way? We all do sometimes. But, there is someone who loves you. God loves you! That may seem like just a cliché, but is it?

God's Love Is Seen in the Creation

When God created the heavens and earth, He created all things that man would need for life, health, and happiness. He created them in abundant supply. Now, 6-10,000 years later, what we need is still in abundant supply. Certainly, man has developed much of what we use, but, he developed them from the earth, sun, animals, and plants which God created long ago!
Our bodies are, as the psalmist declared, "fearfully and wonderfully made" (Ps. 139:13-15). The systems within us are suited for our needs, including our health and happiness. When things go wrong, nature provides the means whereby they can be repaired.
From the beginning God realized that "It is not good that the man should be alone," so, He said, "I will make him a helper comparable to him" (Gen. 2:18, NKJV). He then proceeded to make the woman as a helper for the man (Gen. 2:18-24).
Truly, God's love is seen in the creation!

God's Love Is Seen in His Forgiveness

When God created the first couple (Gen. 1-2) He placed them in a beautiful garden wherein was found all that they needed for food and enjoyment. He gave them a simple law - "But of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat of it: for in the day that thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die" (Gen. 2:18). But, enter the "subtil" (subtle, shrewd, crafty, sly, sensible, Thayer) serpent. He convinced the first woman to disobey God's law and eat the forbidden fruit and give to her husband to eat Gen. 3:1-6). The result was immediate spiritual death (separation from God) and eventually physical death. They did not die on that day, (Continued on page 2)
