The Greatest Love Story

I love a good love story, don't you? Leading up to Valentine's Day, you probably heard about and read many love stories including mine here. But there is one love story that is my absolute favorite.  It is by far the greatest love story that I have ever heard. It is a true love story!




It is the story of God's love for his children. God loved us so much that he gave the world his one and only son so that we could have eternal life after earth. Now that's true love!

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.  John 3:16 

Imagine a father who would sacrifice his son to save everyone else.  Sin started with Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden and went on down the line. God knew we needed redemption of our sins and his son Jesus was the one to do it. To be honest, I don't think I could sacrifice my son to save someone else. I love my son and I am selfish. But then again, I am human. However God loves everyone and knew that by sacrificing his son, there would be a greater good come out of it. He wanted us to not all perish in sin.  With his son dying on the cross and rising in 3 days, we now can have eternal life. 

But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:8


If we accept Christ as our personal Savior and friend, we will receive forgiveness of our sins. All of our sins will be erased. We will have a mansion in heaven that waits for us. We will never have to worry about getting sick or dying again. We don't have to worry about anything that upsets us like it does here on this earth. All will be peace, love and joy. We will be re-united with those who have gone on before us. We will also meet Jesus face to face. Isn't that worth getting excited for? 


That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. Romans 10:9-13

Isn't it amazing just how much God loves us? He knew we were on a bad road of self destruction. He didn't want to see us die in our sins, so he sacrificed his precious son on our behalf to pay the price for us. It should have been us paying for our sins, but God loves us unconditionally and blessed us with the gift of being able to to repent of our sins and be cleansed of them. He sacrificed his son so that we could live life eternally. I am so thankful Jesus died and rose again on that third and glorious day just for me and you. This is by far the greatest and most selfless love story that you will ever hear. God sure is good!
