God loves us, and He demonstrated that love when He sent His only son Jesus into the world.
Jesus loves us, and He demonstrated His love for us by dying on the cross for our sins. He demonstrated His power over our two greatest enemies, sin and death, when He rose from the grave on the third day.
He has gone to be with the Father but before He left, He made us a promise that He was going to prepare a place for us and would come again to take us to live with Him in Heaven. All He asks is for us to demonstrate our love for Him by living for Him.
Thank you Bro. Bill. We miss you.
