Real Love

Real SacrificeThis is real love — not that we loved God, but that He loved us and sent His Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins.  – 1 John 4:10

Sacrifice.  Do we really understand the depth of that word? The dictionary defines it as “the surrender or destruction of something prized or desirable for the sake of something considered as having a higher or more pressing claim.”  What could have higher value than your child – an only child?

To our God, it was us…everyone else’s child. Great love and great sacrifice go hand in hand. The more we learn about love, the more we can begin to understand how selflessness and giving are inseparable from the path of Christianity and our responsibility as His followers.
