I must confess that I really don't have a secret; I was just hoping that the title would catch your attention. What I do have is some really great news! GOD LOVES YOU!

I want you to think about that for a minute. The very one who created the universe, who is eternal, who has all power loves you! In our lives we have many people who love us: our parents, children and friends. I am thankful that I have a family and many friends who love me, but I am ECSTATIC that God loves me.

How can we know that God loves us? Well, I could quote many scriptures but I prefer to paint a picture for you. In this picture we see the Son of God leave Heaven to come to the earth. He was born in poverty and though a king, was treated like the lowliest of people. He went about doing good, healing people, loving people and showing kindness in so many different ways. The picture becomes ugly, however, as we see man take him and severely flog Him. We see man repeatedly punch Him in the face. We see man place a crown of thorns on His head. We see man strike Him on the head with a stick. We see man spit in His face. We see man mock Him. Finally, we see man lay Him on a cross and drive nails into His hands and feet. We then listen as He utters these words, "Father, forgive them for they know not what they do."

Why did Jesus suffer to this degree? The answer is because He loves YOU! That's right, the Son of God loves you! He died because He wants you to spend eternity in Heaven with Him. Would you like to learn about the love of God for you? World Bible School is a ministry of the Lord's Church in which you will have a teacher who will send you Bible lessons. You will study of the love that the Lord has for you and will discover what you must do to inherit eternal life. We look forward to assisting you in discovering the love that God has for you.
