“God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him won’t perish but will have eternal life.” John 3:16
As I read this passage I think of my own son and daughter. The idea of giving my son or daughter to save the lives of others is something I could not do, no matter how noble the cause. God gave his only son to save us regardless if we feel we are worthy of this exceptional gift.
Next, God gives us the choice as to whether we believe in Jesus. The love God has for us is so abundant he does not demand anything. God provides the choice to believe in his son as a path to eternal life.
Thank you, Lord, for giving your son to save us from our sins, your exceptional gift provides the opportunity for eternal life, Amen.
