The Ultimate Expression of God’s Love

“When you feel like God doesn’t love you anymore, remember the cross.”

 “For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.” – John 3:16

 

“The ultimate expression of God’s love is Jesus nailed on the cross. So just in case you run out of reasons to believe that God still loves you, if you’re struggling to get a head-start for your comeback, think about the cross. If you’re asking why you need to go back to God, remember His love on the cross. Let His love carry you back. “

– Pastor Ru dela Torre

Who’s under the Spotlight?

Do you love the Cross because it makes much of you?

Or do you love it because it enables you to enjoy an eternity of making much of God?

— John Piper

Grace Wins, Hands Down

Even at the face of oppression and death,

Christ still made every effort to say,

“Father, forgive them for they do not know what they are doing.”

Salvation’s End

“…you are a chosen people… that you may declare the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.” — 1 Peter 2:9

You are chosen. 
Billions of people in the world, and you are chosen.
Chosen to be blessed, chosen to be loved, chosen to be saved.
Out of nothingness and insignificance, you were made important and relevant.
You play the starring role in the greatest rags-to-riches movie ever told in the universe.
But the story does not end there; your life story does not stop at salvation. No.
You were chosen for one ultimate purpose – worship.
 
Your salvation is not for yourself, but for God! 
You are given the greatest honor of being chosen with the specific purpose of worshiping Him!
If worship is not the ultimate purpose of your salvation, then you are missing the best part of being saved!
Worship is the place of abundant blessings, richest fellowships, and incomparable fulfillment!
 
You were bought with the highest price for a reason.
Praise Him – daily, honestly, passionately.
That is true salvation’s end.
 

“We are saved to worship God. All that Christ has done for us in the past and all that He is doing now leads to this one end.”
— A.W. Tozer

ill-deserved Grace

Will you choose your god who wants you to give up everything you have, even your very life for you to be saved?

Or will you choose my God who gave up everything He had, even His very life so that you could be saved?

“But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”

Romans 5:8

Closer to Truth

          Ralph Wood, professor of theology and literature at Baylor University, once asked a group of seminary students to compare two individuals: the modern, astute collegian who insists that sin and the fall of humanity are fallacies invented by the superstitious, and a primitive young man in a remote village whom you find in the woods sacrificing a chicken on a makeshift altar. “Which man is farther from the truth?” he asked.

The students hemmed and hawed but hesitantly agreed that the pagan boy, however crudely, understood something the other did not.

There is a need in our lives for atonement. There is a need for blood.   

 “Indeed, under the law almost everything is purified with blood, and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness of sins.

Hebrews 9:22, ESV
