Jesus Gave Up His Life To Us!

To be completely honest with you, I didn’t fully realize the beautiful connection shared between John 3:16 and I John 3:16.

The all favorite John 3:16 and perhaps most memorized scripture says, ”For this is how God loved the world: He gave His one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life.”

Now take a look at 1 John 3:16, “This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers and sisters.”

Do you see the beautiful connection between the two verses?!

Here’s a grease perspective to embrace; salvation is not us giving up our life to Jesus; it’s Jesus giving up His life to us!

Beloved of God (this means you), I am so ever undeservedly grateful for God’s gift (JESUS)! Personally, I know there is absolutely nothing I could ever do to repay God for what He selflessly did for me. That’s why I am humbled and motivated to lay down my life for my brothers and sisters, so that you too may experience the brevity and abundance of Jesus’ all embracing love in your respective lives!
