17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. John 3:17
Jesus did not come to condemn the world, He came to save it by laying down His life. He chose the cross and the nails. He chose the humiliation and the suffering. Everything Jesus did was because He simply loves us. We have done nothing to deserve the love of God. It is simply because of His grace and His mercy that He chose to save us. He desires to lavish His love upon us and desires to develop deep intimacy with us. This can only happen as we draw near each day in the place of prayer and the study of His word. If we will set aside the things that have no eternal value and simply pursuit Him with our whole heart, we will experience the abundantly life Jesus spoke of. So many miss out because they are too distracted and too consumed by things that have no eternal value. Let us make Him the priority and hunger after Him more than the very air we breath.
