This is how God showed His love

“This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him.”‭‭1 John‬ ‭4:9‬ ‭NIV‬‬

God demonstrated His love for us by sending His only begotten Son in our place. Jesus was not forced to go to the cross but chose to go to the cross because of His love for us. Nothing we receive from God is because we have earned it. The offer of salvation is open and extended for any who will believe. We simply need to place our trust in Jesus and walk with Him each day. When we understand God’s love for us we will lay down whatever He calls us to lay down. Let us focus upon the Lord alone and His love for us.
