“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life…. John 3:16”.
This is the Greatest love that ever exist in the universe. God because of his love for us- the people of the world, sent his only begotten son, not to come condemn us for our sins but to save us by giving his own life as a willing sacrifice so by it we can have Remission of sins, as we believe in him and confess with our mouth: and afterwards eternal life will be granted unto us (Romans 10:9; Acts 2:38).
1 John 1:9 says; “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness”. Isn’t this wonderful? To be cleansed, not from some of your sins and unrighteousness but from ‘All’ so you can become righteous. He even made you holy and a royal priest (1 Peter 2:9). Praise God!
God himself is love. The moment you come to God through Jesus Christ, He gives you rights. Christianity is not a religion, so by no means think when you become a Christian, you loose your will to do what you want to do. Christianity is life. As a Christian, you have rights in Christ. They are; Right to choose, Right to live and Right to Rule.
A typical example of God’s love for man is in Mark 1:40-42, “And there came a leper to him, beseeching him, and kneeling down to him, and saying unto him, if thou wilt, thou will thou canst make me clean. And Jesus, moved with compassion, put forth his hand, and touched him, and saith unto him, I will, be thou clean. And as soon as he had spoken, immediately the leprosy departed from him, and he was cleansed”. Note. Something striking here, the leper said, ‘IF THOU WILT, THOU CANST MAKE ME CLEAN’. This was a request. But see the Response of Jesus, ‘I WILL, BE THOU CLEAN’. Get something clear in this scripture, Jesus was moved with COMPASSION.
