For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16
Who would have thought that this Omnipresent, Omni-powerful God is Love and all He ever wanted…is Love?! Who would have thought that our interactions with mankind could be condensed to Love? The Bible is summarized into…what would I want someone to do to or for me…or…do to others as you would have them do to you. These were simply sayings or words that you heard in Sunday School but they were not principles you purposed above all or that consumed your life. Who would have thought that giving LOVE is the beginning and end of all salvation here on Earth and in Heaven?
God loved so much that He GAVE His Son. Jesus was so grounded on the concept of giving that when he arrived on Earth, he loved so much that he GAVE. If you claim Christianity and Christ as your Savior, then you imitate his behavior and walk in his footsteps, transforming your mind with a Christ-like mindset. Jesus Christ loved the world so much that he GAVE. The fruit that is born from burgeoning Remnant Churches under this emphasis of imitating Christ’s life of giving is remarkable to behold. The next emphasis is not a one-time gift to the Church but a daily mindset of sacrificial giving.…we are to give, give again and then give some more. “Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends. You are my friends if you do what I command.” John 15:13-14 Christ surrendered his life. So we are to have that same great love and forfeit our life, for there is no greater Love.
