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.
God loves us so much that he sent his Son to be beaten, humiliated, persecuted and to die on the cross just to save us from our own sins and a life of eternal damnation. As long as we believe in Jesus Christ, have faith in Him and live according to God’s word we will live forever, not on this Earth but in Heaven with the Father.
Would you give your child’s life to save others knowing that they have done wrong? That they have committed murder, rape, adultery, robbery, fraud or any of these things against you, your family members or your friends? No we would not. But God did. Hallelujah! Praise God! I certainly am glad He did.
Jesus gave his life for ours, He made the ultimate sacrifice so that we could be forgiven of our sins and live. That is pure and unconditional love.
