Love Before and After the Cross

Fallen Humankind

Father’s Love for Fallen Humankind Before and After the Cross

Prior to the finished work of Jesus the Son of Man*, God loved the world in the following ways.

1. God loved His creation. Genesis 1, “And God saw that it was good.”

2. God loved fallen humankind. As in John 3:16, “For God so loved the world … .”

All that was missing in God’s love for fallen humankind was that portion of love conditioned upon adherence to the Mosaic Law.

This condition was met when the Father extended to all humankind His love for Jesus for having adhered to the Mosaic Law.

So, now following the finished work of Jesus the Son of Man, which included His full adherence to the Mosaic Law, God’s love toward fallen humankind was full and complete.

Now, by Grace, God loves fallen people everywhere with the same perfect love that He has for Jesus the Son of Man.
