John 3:16 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
The greatest love ever demonstrated was the Love of Jesus Christ. He lived to love others. He spent His life on earth helping those that needed help. He taught truth to them; He washed their feet; He invested His time and life in serving and caring for others. To top it off, He would give His life for those that envied Him and wanted Him dead. Then he shocked the world with his amazing statement when He hung on that rugged cross, “Father forgive them…”
Romans 5:8 “But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.”
Romans 5:7 “For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die.”
It is a rare incident that one will give his life for a good and upright man; perhaps one would think twice about it. But what are the chances of a person giving his life for those that were ungodly, unthankful, disrespectful, lying, wicked, and sinful? I would say no chance. Not so with our God. His Love is beyond human comprehension, further from this world, His Love is Divine, and is demonstrated in His Son the Lord Jesus Christ!
Romans 5:10 “For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.”
The story is told of a woman who left her husband. The husband called the police and filed a “missing persons report.” A few weeks later the police found her a few counties over. They asked him if he wanted them to take him to her. By now the husband had realized how poorly he had treated his wife. He decided to write to his wife, and he kept writing for months. Finally, Christmas came, and he went to see her (she was in a run-down hotel). He asked her to come home and she did. On the way home he said, “I’ve written to you for months, why did you come home so easily now?”
She replied, “Because those were just letters, this time you came in person.”
Christ came in person to save us and demonstrate to us His love.
In Christ Alone,
