JESUS said "Behold, i give you the authority.... Luke 10:19
A Christmas Reminder -14th December,2020

JESUS CHRIST was sacrificed for US! Yes, you and I and all the generations that existed, exist and are to come! Our lives reflect the reality of a sacrificial death on our behalf. God died for us. We were lost and GOD had to make a sacrifice to get us back to himself, a very expensive sacrifice, that of his only son. GOD had to do it, sacrifice JESUS, because he loves you! Understand why he did it, GOD loves JESUS and in JESUS, you are!

In GOD’s WORD, Paul the apostle shares in Romans 5:8 that God, the maker of heaven and earth, the alpha and the omega, the beginning and the end, the only ruler, the King of all that exists, loves us, and to make it known sacrificed and planned the death of JESUS!  

Do you see it? The love of our Father GOD and the price that was paid to gain back his creation. GOD’s WORD in John 3:16 clearly states, “For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son.” For it was love that motivated our Father, love for his Son and his creation to make such a bold move. Would any of us make such a sacrifice? Let reflect on this, to gain a better understanding of GOD’s love for us.

JESUS is Lord! Our GOD died for us, how beautiful is his love for us and he professes it in the WORD in John 15:13 when he told his disciples, “Greater love has no one than this, that someone lay down his life for his friends.” What was said was also done, JESUS didn’t turn back, he did ask for strength from the Father to get the job done but GOD’s power in HIM was at action and got results. These results are evident on the cross.

The greatest love story of all is this, GOD loved us enough to sacrifice JESUS on the cross. This sacrifice was no temporary sacrifice, it has an eternal effect, lasting for all ages to come. The cost that was paid, was far greater than the debt that had to be paid, the debt of our sins and that of the whole world.

A planned solution (the sacrifice) for an unsuspecting, undeserving people (the world) at an unfathomable and unmatched cost (JESUS).  A fireworks of colourful crackers has the most beautiful display in the sky. The effects are pleasurable, they give us joy to see all the sparkles lighting up the firmaments and all this is just for a few moments. There’s been a display over two thousand years ago, the display for GOD’s unconditional love, his glory, his majesty, his boldness and his purpose.

Our supreme GOD and his mysterious ways, who can understand? His love in the death of Christ should overwhelm us, make us get down on our knees and worship him. What GOD did on that hill in Jerusalem sacrificing JESUS on that cross should make us realise that there is no greater love. We ask GOD to help us get a deeper understanding of this love, help us to get deeper into HIS WORD and help us to proclaim it!
