God’s Love For Mankind

February 16, 2013 in christian thought, faith, forgiveness, love, sin

We celebrate Valentines on February 14th, every year but we celebrate our true love at Easter. “For God so love the world that He gave His only begotten son, that who soever believes in Him should have everlasting life.” John 3:16.  What love He has shown us, what kindness. God in His holiness could not save us because of our sin but He made a way through His son Jesus Christ. He left His royal thrown with His Father willingly, not forced, no resentment, like a lamb to the slaughter. How awesome is that!

Christ came to earth, born as a baby, grew as a child, worked as an adult and died as our savior. He wanted to save us from our sins because without His gift of life, we would not have redemption from our sins. The severity of this is not understood by us at the divine level. Sin and righteousness are like oil and water, they cannot mix. God would not be able to allow us into His presence, we were doomed to die. That is why the love that Christ showed us is so awesome. Let us meditate on this gift of love that our God has bestowed on us. This is true love.
