MADE WITH LOVE
“For God so loved the world, that he gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
My friend made a beautiful lighthouse for her mother for her birthday. She said her mother said it was nice. My friend was disappointed, as she had put a lot of time, effort, and love into the gift. She told her mother she had made it for her. Her mother’s attitude changed. She looked at it closer and started telling everyone about the beautiful gift her daughter had made for her.
One day, God gave us the greatest Gift that anyone could ever give. He wrapped His Beloved Son in a human form and sent Him to earth on a mission. If you are a parent, would you be willing to send your child on a mission knowing in advance that your child would be tortured, ridiculed, spat upon, beaten, and completely deserted by every person?
God knew all this when He sent Jesus on the mission. You might wonder why God, Who is Love, would send Him on the mission. It is because Jesus is the only One Who can satisfy God's requirements for a Perfect Sacrifice.
Jesus paid the Price for us. The debt has been paid in full. There is nothing that you can do to earn a place in Heaven. All your money, homes, and possessions can’t buy Heaven. It is only through accepting the Price, the Precious Blood of Jesus, that you can be assured of a Home in Heaven for Eternity.
