John 3v16Today, Christians around the world remember the day when Jesus was crucified.

Despite being without sin, He was found guilty in a mock trial and sentenced to death.

With a crown of thorns shoved onto His head, He carried His own cross up a hill and then was nailed to it.

Naked and between two thieves, Jesus died a horrible death.

Why would He do this?

Why would God humble Himself and come to earth just to die?

John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world that he gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

He did it for us.

For you and me.

And He did it because He loves us.

He who was perfect and holy got what we deserved so that we can get what He deserves.

The cross is a wonderful symbol of Christianity.

It’s God’s Valentine’s Day card for all of us.
