I got this off the blog Sisters in Cahoots. (don't worry I got permission to do this and am linking to their blog below) Anyway it tells what God's love for mankind is and how he showed it. (and, psssst, she's having a givewaway)
Valentine's Day encourages love. Love of all types exist. Love between a husband and wife, mothers and father and their children, and the list goes on. But when I consider just how much I cherish and love my family, I'm humbly reminded about God's love for mankind.
For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son; that whosoever believeth on Him should not perish, but have everlasting life. ~ John 3:16
This is probably one of the most well-known verses in the Bible ~ and it should be. As a mother that spends every minute of every day with her children, it tears me up to even consider giving one of my children up to pay someone else's sin debt. Yeah. Right. Ain't going to happen. I'm selfish that way, I suppose...
Praise God I don't have to though. He's already done it so I can either accept His gift of eternal life, or I can go along my own little merry way.
The other night, a friend of ours loaned us his copy of the movie Courageous and it inspired me to write this post. Why? Because God can use any medium to reach someone's heart for Him. After watching, (and bawling through) this funny, heart-warming, faith-affirming, heart-breaking movie, I want to be even more dedicated to Him. In everything I do.
