Be glad then, you children of Zion, And rejoice in the Lord your God; For He has given you the former rain faithfully, And He will cause the rain to come down for you— The former rain, And the latter rain in the first month.

Joel 2:23

Romans 5:8

Love Demonstrated!

   If you are a parent or are considering becoming one, could you imagine sacrificing your child; I am a parent and I couldn't even consider sacrificing one of my children, it would tear my heart out. God the Father sent His Son Jesus into the world to be a propitiation for us. Jesus took our sin debt on Himself and suffered the wrath of God instead of us. I man I didn't even know came to earth and suffered a horrific death for me. Jesus took my place on the cross and He did the same for you. That is what I call love. That is how I describe God and Jesus, love.

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

John 3:16

   There is another story that we are taught from the Bible; starting in Genesis 22 we read about Abraham and Isaac, and how Abraham was to offer up Isaac as a sacrifice to the Lord. The story continues and as Abraham was about to plunge the dagger into Isaac the Lord our God provided a ram for the sacrifice. It is yet another story, a lesson of how God will provide if we trust in Him and put our faith in Him. Abraham had Isaac on the alter when God provided the ram; that is faith, that is righteousness and obedience to God. I can't even imagine having enough courage to do that; thank God He never ordered me to do such a thing.

   Putting it all into the proper perspective; God gave His only Son, Jesus Christ to die on the cross for the sins of the world. Jesus was mocked, beaten, humiliated, tortured by scourging and He hung on the cross for our sins; to pay our sin debt in full. Now God demonstrates His love towards us all by sacrificing the Lamb who was sinless on the cross and all we have to do is believe in Him, confess our belief and repent of our sin; it is that simple. God provided a way for us to be with Him and He did this while we were still sinners.

But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Romans 5:8

God has demonstrated His love for us, have you demonstrated your love for Him?
