There is much Love shown by God who has shed his love in our hearts by the Holy Ghost. “And hope maketh not ashamed;because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly”.(Romans 5:5,6).
It is written we are a new creation in Christ when born again. “Now this I say,brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God; neither doth corruption inherit incorruption”.(1 Corinthians 15:50).So we are so thankful when we read he has delivered our soul from the pit of corruption! “Behold, for peace I had great bitterness: but thou hast in love to my soul delivered it from the pit of corruption:for thou hast cast all my sins behind thy back.For the grave cannot praise thee,death can not celebrate thee:they that go down into the pit cannot hope for thy truth”.(Isaiah 38:17,18).
Our Father in Heaven is longsuffering and willing that none of his children perish,but repent. “The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance”.(2 Peter 3:9).
If we are truly sorry for our sin he will forgive and remove it far from us. “Come now let us reason together, saith the Lord:Though your sins be as scarlet,they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson,they shall be as wool.If you be willing and obedient,ye shall eat the good of the land: But if ye refuse and rebel,ye shall be devoured with the sword:for the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it”.(Isaiah 1:18-20).
Even when we were dead in our sins, by his grace is willing to save us through Christ! “But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us,Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus”.(Ephesians 2:4-6).
The Greatest and most beautiful scripture God has shown his love through is a passage that many know. “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.For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved”.(John 3:16,17).
The world has many gifts to offer,but not the gift of Eternal Life which God has offered to all who accept his Son through repentance…………
