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.
This verse is the first Bible I remember hearing as a child. Through it I came to know Jesus, His work on the Cross, and the freedom from sin's penalty. I have never been sorry that I trusted Him. When we receive Christ, God freely gives us so many other gifts:
His peace. John 14:27
His righteousness Ro. 5:17
His grace Epe.2:8-9
His light and guidance Luke 1:79
His comfort II Cor. 1:4
And there is so much more...
If God so freely gives because of His love, what kind of love do I have??? If I am not giving, I am not truly loving.
Happy Birthday, Jonathan! - Few people in the world enjoy and embrace life as much as our Jonathan. He is a mover and a shaker. Always doing something.....always making something........
