“And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent his Son to be the Savior of the world.” 1 John 4:14 (NIV)
The human race decided to follow their own path. We decided to move away from God instead of drawing toward him. Our choices opened the door to sin in our lives driving a divide between us and God. One that we would not cross on our own. God sent Jesus to be the Savior of the world. His sacrifice bridged the divide between us and God. The love God felt for us is the root of why God gave his Son for us (John 3:16). The good news of the gospel is that God chose to die, so we could have a relationship with him instead of us having to be good enough or work hard enough to earn it.
Prayer: God, thank you for loving me. Thank you for sharing your love with me. Help me to be a witness of your love to others. In Jesus name. Amen.
