A love worth Giving...

He came...
He learnt...
He thought...
He lived ...
He died
for you and me...
Our lives He snatched
from the graves
re-directing our paths
our destinity He changed...
our souls He rescued and saved

Today, many years ago, God scarified His one and only Son, our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. He was killed for the elevation of you and I. This as described in 1 John 4: 9 - 10, it reads:

9 In this the love of God was manifested toward us, that God has sent His only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through Him. 10 In this is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins

This sacrifice epic's the meaning of love and it's worth. It writes a story of
" A love Worth Giving" as further explained in John 3:16, it reads " 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"

The death of Jesus Christ on this very day inverted our pathway to Hell!!
The dictionary explains invert as: to reverse in position, order, direction, or relationship.
So, it is safe to say that the death of our saviour on the cross, that faithful day, many years ago, did the following and much more:

  • It changed the direction and nature of our eternity!
  • He changed our direction from hell bound to heaven bound,
  • He changed our relationship with the world and the devil, to a relationship with God and heaven.
  • He changed our stance from a sinner to a saint
  • and our identity from guilty to justified!
Isn't that just awesome... ?!!!

In all this, somehow somewhere in God's mind, He finds it a worthy cause to sacrifice His only son, all through the love He has for mankind!!! I mean how many of us would sacrife our seats on a packed train for the old lady hangin onto the rails!?!?. But God found the essence of His love for us, was simply "A love worth giving" For this we must embrace and treat this event as such!

So today as we celebrate the death of Jesus Christ, let us remember, we celebrate Life it has given us, we celebrate the essence and meaning of love that God has shown to mankind, we celebrate the meaning of what God has done for us through our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

I encourage you to come, drink your fill from His blood that was shed this very day, I promise you will never be the same again.
Have a great day celebrating the death of our Lord and saviour Jesus Christ, not forgetting to make the most High God famous along the way.

Happy Easter!

Much Love

Another thoughtful piece, girl- isn't it awesome that God loved us enough to give His only son? And even with us being sinful and all, He just went ahead and did it anyway? How can we ever thank Him enough?
