"Does Jesus Really Care?"
Text: I Peter 5:7
Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.
Many people have asked this question, "Does Jesus Really Care About Little Me?" The text that I have giving I believe answers the question very simply.

IV.How much does Jesus care for us?
A.He cared enough to die for us.
16For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. 17For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
39And he went a little further, and fell on his face,
and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible,let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt.
