“He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?”
April 6, 2022
I have two sons. If you were to ask me, “Will you give me one of your sons so that I might butcher and torture him?” I would say no, absolutely not! You might ask, “What if it might save me and I could be forgiven?” I still wouldn’t do it. The reality is, I don’t love you that much. I don’t love anybody that much. But God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son. He did not spare Jesus. Jesus had my sin, your sin, our sin upon Him. Consider this. Do you think God will spare you if you don’t receive Jesus, if you don’t put your faith where God has put your sin? If there were ever a time when God would have been tempted to be lenient upon sin, it was when that sin was upon the Lord Jesus Christ. But Jesus suffered at the holy hand of God as the only means by which we can be saved.
Spend time today dwelling on the reality that God has given up His only Son for you.
