GOD SO LOVED Print

“For God so loved the world that He gave . . .”  God’s amazing love is expressed in His generosity.  Giving us Himself so that we might have life . . . and then giving us His task – which is sharing the knowledge of Him and His great love with the world.  Paul writes, “How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in?  And how can they believe in the one whom they have not heard?  And how can they hear without someone preaching to them?  And how can they preach unless they are sent?  As it is written, ‘How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!’”

We mirror God’s great love to the world and express love for our fellow man by sharing the faith we have in Christ Jesus.  Breathing in the Word and then living it out in view of the world causes our witness to contain power – to have a believability about it!  This allows us to be heard, because our words are seen to carry weight.  The realness of these words are only felt in as much as we believe them ourselves.  Only love felt can be properly expressed.

For our God so loved this world that He first gave us His Son and then He gave us filled with His Son!  So in reality, you and I are God’s expression to the world of His great love.  That’s cause for pause!

Live out your faith!
