But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.
Romans 5:8, NKJV
While the phrase living proof is associated with a line of haircare products, two movies, and the ministry of Beth Moore, Jesus proved His love in precisely the opposite way. The cross offers dying proof that Jesus loves you.
In the face of danger, we need heroes. A lunatic’s bullets riddle the square. An army invades our borders. Raging flames consume people and property. Our normal instinct is to flee and survive. But officers, soldiers, and firemen run toward the danger, willing to die.
Among all the heroes who have ever died, only One could be a perfect sacrifice. Jesus faced the greatest danger, fought the strongest foe, and won the greatest victory. Never doubt that you are loved. Look to the cross and examine the dying proof.
