The Greatest Love Of All
Have you ever wondered why we still exist? When Adam and Eve were instructed by
God that they may eat of all the fruits in the garden of Eden except the forbidden
fruit, God had told them that you will surely die. When they committed sin, God
could have killed them instantly and He could have created a new batch of humans
to replace them.
Yet, God had allowed them to live and have children that had filled this world,
though death came upon all of us in the form of old age, sickness, accidents,
violence, as victim of calamities and all forms of evil in this world including
Is it possible that God could not afford to loose us? Is it really possible that
God loved the human race so much that He devised a plan to give us hope and a
chance to live?
In the human society today, when one of us commit a grievous mistake or a crime,
that person has to pay for it either by imprisonment and or pay a fine. In some
circumstances, the civilized world may even impose capital punishment - death.
But why the imprisonment and or a fine? It is because our human society allows
that offender to realize his or her mistake and to change for the better. Of
course, most hardened criminals are either punished with either lifetime
imprisonment or death.
If human governments can afford to give offenders the chance to change their
characters for the better and allow them to live either by parole or by completing
the sentences that the offenders receive, how much more for God.
If we try to examine God's own words - the Holy Scriptures which is also called
the Holy Bible - it is evident in John 3:16 - "For God so loved the world that He
gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him, should not perish but
have everlasting life.
Wow! What a statement. He really loves the human race so much that He sent His
only Son - Jesus in our place! The solution to our sentence of death is to
believe in Jesus that we may have hope and a chance to live forever.
As Christians, we know that we may still taste death. Yet if we only believe in
Christ as our redeemer, we have the hope to live again and live forever when He
comes to take us home. He did not sent Jesus to die in exchange for one man only
but for the whole human race.
Isn't God's love the greatest love of all then?
