He Gave His Son


Out of His love for us and His desire to save us, He gave us His Son.

John 3:16-21  For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God’s one and only Son. This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that their deeds will be exposed. But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what they have done has been done in the sight of God.        

I ask God for so many things. I ask for peace and comfort and wisdom and love and forgiveness and vengeance and all sorts of things. I seem to have an ongoing list of things I want; things I think I need. But here we read what God has given us.

Out of His love for us, out of His desire to save us, He gave us His Son. When I compare what He gave to what I asked for I am shamed by my shallow requests. He gave His Son to save me.
