HIS LOVE BROUGHT LIFE
TEXT: JOHN 3:13-17
MEMORY VERSE: “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” (JOHN 3:16).
On the first anniversary of their wedding, Raj Kundra, a famous British businessman, gifted his wife, Shipa Shetty, an apartment on the 19th floor at the Burg Khalifa. This expensive gift made headlines in various newspapers and gained media attention around the world. It was regarded as the most expensive gift in history, according to the Guinness World Book of Records.
Gifts allow us to convey our love, appreciation and gratitude to our loved ones. The depth of the love may be measured by the value of the gift.
Raj Kundra’s love for his bride cannot be equated with God’s love, which was expressed by the most expensive gift on record – His only begotten Son, Jesus. The love of God, according to A. W. Tozer, is the hardest of all His attributes to speak about. It defies description of preachers and prophets; it transcends illustrations by psalmists and poets. It is incomprehensible and unfathomable.
Jesus Christ abolished death and brought life and immortality into the limelight through the gospel. “Whosoever believes in him should not perish.” Do you believe this?
QUOTE: Jesus Christ abolished death.
CHALLENGE: The love of God is incomprehensible.
PRAYER: Lord, help me to be a beneficiary of Your love.
