Love in Action

John 3:16-17 “For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through him.

Jesus Christ was the manifestation of God in human form. In fact, his name Emmanuel means God with us. God is love, therefore, everything Jesus did was an expression of God’s love for mankind. The major demonstration of God’s love was Jesus dying on the cross for our sins. What an amazing Savior Jesus is! In the Old Covenant, they were required to offer an innocent lamb as a sacrifice for their sins. Jesus Christ is the fulfillment of that sacrifice for us under the New Covenant. He is our Lamb of God who died to take away the sins of the world. Everyone, regardless of what sinful acts we committed, if we choose to believe in Jesus Christ we are forgiven and receive eternal life.

Eternal life is the life of God. The quality of spiritual life that we received through faith in Jesus Christ. Eternal life is the winning life we receive because of Jesus Christ. God loves us so much that he gave his son, Jesus Christ. This is the greatest act of love this planet has ever experienced. What a mighty and loving God we worship!

Prayer- Father, I thank you for giving your son Jesus Christ to die for me. I believe and I thank you for giving me eternal life. I have your life, your nature, and your ability in my heart right now. In Jesus name, amen.
