God’s Love Cannot Be Understood Apart from the Cross of Christ

The Bible takes the concept of God’s love and connects it to the cross of Jesus Christ because that is where the mystery of God’s love was most clearly revealed. This is what Paul said in Ephesians 5:25, “Christ also loved the church and gave himself for her.” Other scriptures echo this fact and clearly demonstrated that the love of God simply cannot be understood apart from the cross of Christ: John 15:13, John 3:16, Romans 5:8, I John 4:9-10
