TEXT: John3:16-17
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.

For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.

All through yesterday, this song has been all over me, refuses to keep it’s melodious hands off me, lol.

“Since your love gat a hold of me
Since your love gat a hold of me
I’m a new creature
I’m forever changed !!!!”

And really, it tells a lot about the difference God’s love makes!

Last week, we took a course into God’s love, as we were able to see the simplicity in God’s love, established in a PERSON – CHRIST, made available for all men and today, we would be probing further, as much as we are daily grateful for breathe, shelter, protection and
a couple of other things that seems important to us, still the greatest revelation of God’s love is seen in giving his son, ‘that he gave his only begotten son’.

You see, God in all his supremacy is consistent in his nature, and in
his nature, we find giving.

Not just any kind of giving, but one that echoes selflessness.

Why did God give his son?

That was the only way redemption could be spelt out, the man God always had in mind was SON which Adam distorted its possibility hence allowing …..death to pass through all men.

Such that A MAN had to save MEN;
His life was to save all, to experience every condemnation you could have experienced, hence providing the abundance of grace and the gift of righteousness.

What am I saying?

In simplicity of words, God was never pleased with the fact that man had to go through the circles of sin, drained by weaknesses, burdened by the heavy laden of guilt and fear, WHY?  because you mean so much to him.

That he would never want you all by yourself hence, he gave his son such that you enjoy intimacy daily!

You didn’t need to beg for it, He just gave even before you had the slightest idea of what you’ve gotten yourself into.

He paid it all! Justified and called you acquitted!
Do you understand?

You mean a million to him!

Sing or say my song with me
‘Since your love gat a hold on me
Since your love gat a hold on me
I’m a new creature
I’m forever changed! ‘
