1 John 4:9 (CEV)

God showed his love for us when he sent his only Son into the world to give us life.

 

God’s love for us is undeniable! He did the unthinkable to His only Son in order to save His creation. He knew that for reconciliation to come, someone would have to pay the price. There were no exchanges, returns or refunds available for this purchase. Life would have to be given by one in order to be gained by many.

The Son came into the world and lived among the creation that He helped formed. He was rejected, misunderstood, disrespected, spit upon, beat, mocked, talked about, plotted against, pierced, grieved and also loved by many. He allowed all this to happen so that we could have life. He could have stopped any of it at a blinking of the eye but because He came to do the will of His Father, His submission wouldn’t have it any other way.

Do you really understand what God’s love entails? He allowed a piece of Him to be separated for 33 ½ years in order to reconcile us back to Him. Ladies and gentlemen, that is what you call a REAL RELATIONSHIP!!! You don’t do anything of that nature without first having love, that is already established. Do you still see God’s love working in your life today? It’s all around you. Just look in the mirror and you will see His love looking back at you!

Father, I thank you for showing your love towards me by allowing your Son to die so that I can have life. Help me to really be knowledgeable about the facets of your unconditional love. Help me to also see it at work in my everyday life. In Jesus name I pray, amen!
