Words of Comfort: Gods love me.

How do I know that God loves me? Is it because He fashioned my eyes with 137,000,000 light sensitive cells so that I could see color and beauty? Or because He gave us amazingly intricate ears to enjoy good music, or an unspeakably sophisticated brain to process information?

While I appreciate these as gifts from God, any one of them could be taken from me in a moment of time by a car accident or a stroke or aneurism. If I believed that they were the only tokens of His love, I would then think He no longer loved me. 

Rather, I look to the cross. It stands forever as evidence of His amazing love: “ But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8).
