We love God because He first loved us. Scripture is full of expressions, statements, truths, and promises that abound with the Love of God for us. We celebrate today a mother's love in our life. Mother's are a gift from God through which we as a child first experiences the love of God in our life. Just think what life would be like if we did not have this wonderful gift in our life. Jesus from the cradle to the cross expresses love for his mother. In the manger he was the recipient of Mary's love when he [God] came into the world for our salvation. God sent is son .. John 3:16 " For God so loved the world that He sent his son..." And from the cross Jesus cried.. " Behold my mother...".. care and concern for her well being. This mother's day celebrate the love of God that we experience from our mother, whether she is on this side of glory or on the other side. God is love! Thank God for a mother's love in our life.
Because the tomb is empty!
