Real Love

God showed how much He loved us by sending His one and only Son into the world so that we might have eternal life through Him.
This is real love-----not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins.------1 John 4:9-10

Well this IS really something to wrap our heads around.  The Almighty God, Creator of this universe, looked down on this earth and saw the HOPELESSNESS of mankind, and was moved with COMPASSION for the Crown of His creation.  The BOUNDLESS LOVE that He had for mankind moved Him to providing a PERFECT SACRIFICE for His FALLEN creation, that SACRIFICE could ONLY be a SPOTLESS LAMB, His Son, Jesus Christ.

One of the important parts of this Scripture is the fact that this MONUMENTAL act was NOT prompted by OUR love for God, but because of HIS EVERLASTING love for us.  This TRULY is REAL LOVE.

if you are not feeling that REAL LOVE, you can by:  CONFESSING your sins to God and asking for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU and is ALIVE, in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION.  Do it NOW, while you STILL can. He is waiting!!!
