10th day – What was God’s mission in sending Jesus?
“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)
When God loved us, He didn’t give angels, or a special angel to come to suffer and die for us, but He gave His Son, His only Begotten Son!
Imagine having a wonderful, perfect son that only gives you pleasure and joy every day, that does not give you worries, but only happiness, and to risk this child in favor of someone with so many flaws and mistakes…
God loved us! Even if you are the dirtiest person in the world, He did not see you that way, but He loved you.
In fact, I felt, as the dirtiest person in the world when I had an encounter with Him. But look what He did for us by giving His only Son, so that whoever believes in Him should not perish.
You only need to believe in what He says, and surrender, because when there is a belief and love there is strength! When you understand what He endured for you, you will love Him and measure no effort or sacrifice to please Him. It will hurt apparently, but what hurts is in fact what is making you spiritually imprisoned.
The only thing God desires is our well-being. He wants to give us eternal life! He doesn’t want our days to be limited to this world, which is already difficult, but He wants us to start a new life, right here, by getting to know true happiness. He does not want us to depend on the circumstances, but only dependent on Him. When we are one with Him we will be secure, have balance, direction, strength, and good self-esteem!
“For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.” (John 3: 17)
In fact, the sacrifice God asks of you is what will set you free. Maybe you are attached to what you think is best for you, but after you see what God has to offer, you realize that what you were holding on to only got in your way.
God did not come to condemn. When He speaks, it is to save! To take away this feeling of inferiority, this “poor” spirit that makes you attached to what is not good for you.
God makes everything new. You no longer need to carry your past, disappointments, selfishness, jealousy, or insecurity, instead you will feel secure, loved and will be have the conviction of what direction you need to go!
God did not come to condemn, but to save. He only asks you to give up on what is blocking your faith. What ever is blocking you is what is preventing you from surrendering completely.
I would like you to answer one question: Do you love God? If so, do you recognize Him as your savior? Have you seen yourself as having a lot of faults and as being lost? Then, write, participate in our blog and leave a “piece” of yourself recorded here!
