For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him. John 3: 17 NIV
Jesus is our precious companion. The blood of His love poured strength in the heart of our weakness, when He died on the cross and took the sins of the world. It’s humbling to consider; the One without sin suffered to take our own.
Many continue to turn away from the One who died in our place. But, His love for us endures. He continues to plant seeds of faithfulness and lovingly waits for us to choose whether or not we will be nurtured by His love.
God sent Jesus to teach the truth. He taught about heaven and how to bring peace to the world. He provided hope for everlasting life and taught how to find His JOY. He showed how to do God’s will in difficult circumstances.
He was mistreated, mocked, hated and abused. But, He never stopped showing love. We will never have a better example of love than Jesus. He humbly obeyed His Father and was the only One without sin.
We all sin and fall short of the glory of God. But, when we humbly invite Jesus to dwell in our hearts, we will begin to understand; He is the way, the truth and the light. And, He is the only way to our Father.
Dear God, Thank you for moments to welcome Jesus and feel His tender love. Forgive us when we sin and forget what He taught us to remember. We will take time to reflect on the cross and consider, “It wasn’t the nails which held Him there. It was His love for each one of us.” Amen
