The story is told of a woman who left her husband. The husband called the police & filed a “missing persons report.”
A few weeks later the police found her a few counties over. They asked him if he wanted them to take him to her. By now the husband had realized how poorly he had treated his wife.
He decided to write his wife & he did for months. Finally, Christmas came & he went to see her (she was in a rundown hotel). He asked her to come home & she did.
On the way home he said, “I’ve written you for months, why did you come home so easily?”
She replied, “Because those were just letters, this time you came in person.”
Christ came in person to save us & show us His love.
“This saying is trustworthy and deserves full acceptance: “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners” – and I am the worst of them!” – Paul. (1Ti 1:15 NET).
“Such was God's original love for man that He was willing to stoop to any sacrifice to save him; and the gift of a Savior was the mere expression of that love.” - Albert Barnes.
