Think of this, that from eternity past, God knew all about you. He knew where you would be born. He knew what your name would be. Yes, and He also knew all the sinful things you would do. He knew all the things you would say against Him. Indeed, He even knew that in our pride, that some of us would try to obey our way into Heaven, and that some of us would want nothing to do with Him at all! Yet, despite all this, God gave up His beloved Son in whom He delighted to the cross! Indeed, Jesus willingly gave Himself to the gruesome death upon a cross for you in light of all this! There He willingly took the wrath of God for your sin – all of it! With a certainty, this is love of the highest calibre! For scarcely will a person lay down their lives for a nice person, but Jesus laid down His life for rebellious sinners like us! This is nothing less than amazing grace!
