But God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. – Romans 5:8
If you have seen the documentary, March of the Penguins, you’d probably agree that it was a riveting tale of survival. But as Morgan Freeman’s introductory narrative made clear, it was more a story of the struggle between life and death. He said, “This is a story about love. Like most love stories it begins with an act of utter foolishness.” What a great line!
When you love someone, you’ll go to great lengths to secure or rescue the object of your love. You will—in the eyes of many—behave foolishly.
Just think about things you’ve done or seen done in the name of love. People risk embarrassment, they risk safety, they risk wealth, they risk all sorts of things for someone they love.
The greatest love story that I have ever heard is the one told many years ago on an old rugged cross. History is His Story—the story of how God the Father gave his Son to rescue us from a life of sorrow and void of hope.
Did you know that God is crazy in love with you? This love however is not an act of folly, it is the kind of love that is all redeeming and all encompassing . . . and He’s wanting you to fall in love with Him.

“The true measure of loving . . . is to love without measure.” – St. Bernard of Clairvaux
