For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son,
so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.
God did not send his Son into the world to condemn it, but to save it.
- John 3:16-17 (NLT)
How do you tend to measure love? The greater the love, the greater the sacrifice.
No greater love has ever been evidenced than Jesus. He exchanged His life for our life.
It is because of His death, that we experience His life. For those who have trusted in the Gospel, perishing cannot enter our vocabulary.
Father, thank You for loving us. You gave Your Son to take my place so that I can have a relationship with You. We stood condemned but through Jesus You justified us.
Give me the strength to live not as I was, but who I now am.
