JOHN 3:16 AMP: “For God so [greatly] loved and dearly prized the world, that He [even] gave His [One and] only begotten Son so that whoever believes and trusts in Him [as Savior] shall not perish, but have eternal life.
My Beloved friend in Christ, most times we give only when we are expecting something in return or as a reward for a kind gesture shown to us by another. Many people believe that whoever gives out anything as a gift, only does that expecting something in return. But here in our text, we see how God gave us his son out of love: for God is love.
Just like our father, our ultimate motive for giving and being generous should be out of love and not out of compulsion or expecting anything from our benefactors. God in his mercy will surely reward you as you do that. Amen.
Declare to yourself loud: I am blessed and so I give out of love. Hallelujah.
Heavenly Father, thank you for the gift of your son for the love you have for us. Help us to walk always in this love. In Jesus Name. Amen.
