A priceless gift of Love has been given to this world. This gift, sent from Heaven, has been given to “whosoever believes.” (John 3:16). This “whosoever believes” may be Jew or Gentile, it is salvation offered freely. It is amazing that God should love a wicked world, it’s such amazing love. It’s a wonderful free gift and it should be celebrated! Such marvellous love is expressed through Christ’s death on the Cross. The mercy of God is demonstrated in the Sun rising, unfailingly, every morning. His mercies are new, each day and this mercy comes out of His free and Sovereign good pleasure. From the depth of His goodness He has chosen heirs and joint-heirs with Christ. This mercy is not confined to the elect. Though He has special electing love for His children, mercy and compassion is still part of His nature.
He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.” His love is such that no one can accuse Him of injustice in judgement and in judging the world. He is a righteous judge (Ezekiel 33:11, John 1:10, John 4:10, John 6:32, John 6:51, 2 Peter 3:9, 1 Tim. 2:4).
The goodness and mercies of God extends to this world (John 3:16).He loved this world so much that He sent His only begotten glorious Son to save it. That those who believe in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. This everlasting life has been given to those who come to Him by Faith. Those who come to Him in repentance, through Faith Jesus Christ shall have everlasting life.
Jesus Christ came into this world as a consequence or reaction of His Love. Jesus is the precious gift to a world full of sin. Nobody will have an excuse on the last day. It is the day that everyone will stand before a righteous judge (2 Peter 3:9). He is the Saviour, the Redeemer and the Friend of sinners (Matthew 11:16-19, John 8:1-11) and this redemption has its source in the free and sovereign love of God.
A sufficient atonement has been made for all (Romans 4:25, 8:32). Jesus was despised, rejected, mocked, crucified, and counted guilty for the the offences of all. This love is so unique. “But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners.” – Romans 5:8. Since he did not spare even his own Son but gave him up for us all, won’t he also give us everything else? – Romans 8:32
Truly God is Love!
The Love of God is pure and undefiled. Tell someone about His Love today.
