DAY 1 WEDNESDAY: JULY 2020

THE SACRIFICIAL LOVE OF GOD IN LIFE!

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life (John 3:16).

The love of God is agape and it is sacrificial in life. It is the agape love that gives without reservation; hence, it is never selfish in nature. The love that is kind, full of humility, endures all things, rejoices in the truth and does not fail in life. The Bible says in the opening text that for God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. Of course, every Christian should endeavor to take note of the fact that agape love is indeed God’s kind of love and it is sacrificial in life. God’s kind of love which is agape is sacrificial in life forever.

God’s love was extended to us even while we were still sinners and enemies to God in life. This kind of love is beyond limitations and boundaries in life (Romans 8:35). That is why the Bible says in Romans 5:8, “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Therefore, it is the sacrificial love of God that saves the life of a sinner from damnation and eternal death in life. Agape love which is sacrificial in nature is a gift from God because man does not merit it in any way or standard in life forever.

The agape love which is the sacrificial love of God is the greatest among the fruits and gifts of the Holy Spirit in life. Indeed, there is absolutely nothing that can be compared to it in all areas of life both here and hereafter. That is the reason why the Bible says in John 15:13, “Greater love has no one than this, than to lay than one’s life for his friends.” In fact, the gape love of God is indeed sacrificial in nature and it also has the potency to redeem the worst of all sinners from eternal death and damnation in life. The sacrificial love of God is supreme and above every other love that one can think of in life forever. Happy New Month!

Daily Tip: A Christian that carries the agape love of God is always supreme and above in life because the love of God is in him forever. Shalom!

Golden Text: And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love (1 Corinthians 13:13).
