God’s plan for redemption began before the creation of the world. Jesus was His first thought, not an afterthought. The lamb was slain before the creation of the world (Revelation 13:8). God had decided that even though we would turn against Him and that He would need to send His son to suffer and die to redeem us He would still give us life. Jesus agreed to die for us before we were even created. What kind of love is that?
