    God really loves us that's why he sent his Son Jesus Christ to us so that we can have life in abundance. God is merciful and faithful to his words. Our job now is to accept Jesus as the Son of the living God and obey his words and praise and worship him only. Thanks to the blood of Jesus always. Think and talk about his blood. Thank you Jesus for giving us unconditional love and peace. Amen
