The love of mother for her children is indescribable. Storge in the Greek word which describes the love and affection between parents and children in the Bible. Here is a story given shows the mother's love. 

A family,belongs to the father, mother and 4 month old baby were staying in a multistoried building.One day unfortunately the building trapped by fire.There was no way to escape when the mother came to know about the matter of fire. Only thing in her mind was to rescue her baby eventhough she die. Finally found the way to rescue her kid.She hold the baby closely towards her and jump ed down on her  back through the window. The baby was safe, but she had multiple fracture on back. After many days of medical treatment she could be on wheelchair rest of her life. 

Not only the above story but also many things we might have heard about the Sacrifices,love and affection of mother for children. 

In fact, there are mothers who killed their kids for their own goodness and happiness .

But the Holy Bible says,"When my father and mother forsake me, then the Lord will take me up ".This is the divine love of God for their children.Agape is the Greek word which explains the very nature of God for God is love. Who is the children of God? John 1:12says that "But as many as recieved him (Jesus), to them gave the power to become the children of God,even to them that believe on his name."

So that the divine love of God is for all the belief in Jesus Christ. You may be alone, or friends may betrayed you. But there is a living God in heaven who always care for you. The Holy Bible says that "for God so loved the world that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. "(John 3:16)

Because the almighty God loved the world i.e people in the world including you, he sent his only begotten son Jesus Christ to the world for bearing all the punishment of our sins we have alone and to die on the cross. 

When Jesus died on the cross, our sins also vanished. When he rose again from the cross, the won victory against death and hell, and given that victory to us. But the matter  this victory will not be given unless we believe in him. John 3:16says that "whoever believes in him ",the Bible doesn't says that only holy person or only person who doesn't have any sin. But says "whoever " believes in Jesus Christ will not be destroyed and everlasting life with God in his kingdom. 

As we are creation of God, created in His own image, He is the Father of us."For the Spirit which you have now recieved is not a spirit of slavery to put you once more in bondage to fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption (sonship) in which  we cry, Abba father.The Spirit himself thus testifies together with our own spirit assuring that we are children of God. And if we are. His children, then we are his heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ sharing his inheritance with him (Roman's 8:15-17)

Once we believe in Jesus Christ we become children of God. As we are children of God and he is the father, we are heirs too. We have the right to call him and ask our needs and he is ready to answer us. And we have the right to get His inheritance and He already promised that we will get an everlasting life in His Kingdom. 

       Meanwhile if you do not believe in God, you will be punished for your sins and rewarded in hell."I said therefore unto you, that you shall die in your sins:for if you believe not that I am He, you shall die in your sins."(john8:24)

   All the rewards God promised for His children is only because He loved us. He is the God Almighty who loves us more than anyone in the world. The Bible says that "Greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. "(john15:13)

     Who else can love anyone more than this? Our responsibility is to accept His love by putting our faith in Him. Accept Him as our Savior, redeemer, and ever reigning most powerful God. Then you will be saved.
