One Sunday while attending Sunday School, we were having a discussion about how wonderful Our Lord Jesus Christ is. Then we took on the discussion of  "Would you give your child's life for a Stranger?"  Well of course we all said no. Who would give the life of their child for some ungrateful sinner.  To be able to live while your precious child would die??

Then we talked about what a wonderful gift that God had given us by giving his one and only Son. John 3:16 " For God so loved the world He gave His only begotten Son, for whosoever believeth in Him, should not perish, but have everlasting life."  Have you ever truly and really thought about what that actually meant?  No.  No one really has. We are taught that verse as a child but we never really learn it's full meaning. What a concept!  We are all foolish sinners who claim our love and gratitude for our Heavenly Father and His Son Jesus Christ who died for our sins.  But, deep down in your heart do you really care? Do you? 

Would you give your child's life for me? Would you take a precious babe and give up its life for a murderer? Of course not.   For one second every day of your life look at what we have been given. Look what God gave up for you.  Look at what God gave up for all of the sinners of the world. He did this because He loves us.  Needless to say, that since that Sunday, everyday of my life will never be the same. I will never go another day without thinking of what my Heavenly Father gave up for me. I do care. For God so Loved the World HE GAVE HIS ONLY SON - for you and for me and for all of the people on this earth.
