In the Bible so briefly and yet clearly summarizes God’s relationship with humanity as it is Gods world. The Bible tells us that Gods love is so great that he sacrificed his only Son for us sinners. Anyone who believes in Jesus Christ will be saved. Also we get the glorious hope of eternal life in Heaven.
“For God so Loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”
We find different types of love in this world; love between parents and children, love between husband and wife, love among brothers and sisters etc. But above all these, the love between God and ourselves is the most precious one. While all other love has a chance to fade away, the love of Christ for man is the only eternal love.
Nothing can separate man from Gods Love. 1 John 4:8 tells us “God is Love” which is immeasurable and no love could be compared to His love for Mankind. During Lent, we meditate on the suffering of the Son of man on the Cross. Because of His love for us he sacrificed His life for us sinners. He wants us to taste His love for us and to share the same kind of love to others as Jesus said to His disciples, “A new commandment I give you, that you love one another even as I have loved you, that you also love one another. (John 13:34)
Jesus showed great compassion for the people of this time. Matthew 15:32-38 tells us that Jesus was compassionate towards the multitudes that came to listen to Him. He empathized with their hunger for spiritual food as well as food for physical well being. Once after listening to Him for three long days and nights, the multitudes grew hungry. They sat spell bound by the message Christ had for them.
Whatever riches, power or assets that we possess, we need to surrender it to the Lord for. He wants us to need spiritual and physical, manifestation. Just like He gave himself as a sacrifice on the cross for the redemption of the human race. He also works to kindle the same kind of love in us, so that we give with love, not partially but wholesomely.
