If That Isn’t Love

Think about it:

John 1:1-4. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was fully God. The Word was with God in the beginning. All things were created by him, and apart from him not one thing was created that has been created. In him was life, and the life was the light of mankind.

In the beginning was the Word and the Word was God and the Word was with God. The Word and God had never experienced separation. But mankind, who God created through His Word for fellowship with God and the Word, broke that fellowship. God and the Word missed the fellowship of mankind so God sent the willing Word into the womb of a woman to grow flesh and bones Ike the God-created man. The Word became God’s only begotten Son still the Word but now also man.

They did this to show mankind how God intended them to live and fellowship with God. If this wasn’t enough love there is even more. As the Son grew, experiencing all that mankind experiences, He showed how to do it without sin and in fellowship with God,the Father. The Son had to fellowship and communicate with the Father through prayer demonstrating to mankind the same means. If that isn’t enough love there’s more. Since sinful mankind had no sinless sacrifice the Son gave His flesh and blood over to mankind who rejected God’s love and shed His blood for the eternal sacrifice for mankind’s forgiveness. If that’s not enough love there’s more. The Son physically rose from the dead and showed Himself to hundreds of mankind to tell mankind of God the Father’s forgiveness of mankind through the blood He shed on their behalf. Through mankind’s confession of sin and acceptance of the Son and His shed blood mankind could once again have fellowship with God through prayer. Mankind also has the promise of continual fellowship throughout eternity. What wondrous love is this. Think about it
