“For God so loved that world that He gave His only son, so that whosoever believes in Him, will not perish, but have everlasting life”
we needed saving, we’re hopelessly lost, our life is literally going to hell in a hand-basket and what does this passage of scripture tell us? God loved us. It’s like giving your watch to a bank robber…it doesn’t seem to make sense. We don’t deserve such grace, and yet grace is just what we get with God.
God gave us His one and only son…so we wouldn’t have to die eternally…so that we could once again have a relationship with our Creator. This Son of God’s, was perfect, without sin, and He sacrifices his life for ours…so that his blood now covers our ocean of sin.
I’m not sure about you, but when I read this passage of scripture I don’t just think, “yeah I’ve heard that passage many times in church and Sunday school”; but I now think “Wow…I don’t deserve it…and yet it’s there for me!”
Christmas just came and went. and during that holiday season – kids will be kids and ask for so many things that it drives parents crazy, yet we know that we love them and we desire to give them what they need not what they want.
In God’s case, however, he gave us what we need and what we will want for all time. To be loved. The next time that you feel unloved…think again. You may not have your friends or family around you at that moment, it may hurt, the circumstances around you may not be great, but YOU ARE LOVED!
I want to challenge you to cry out to God in your times of need and in your times of plenty. Know that you have been thought of from the beginning of time and God wants a relationship with you!
