16 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.
So this is the most common verse ever right? I'm pretty sure I'm not alone when i say that I've been mindlessly reciting it since like age four. But what we don't realize, is that this is the promise of a lifetime, all for us
God sent his one and only son, the perfect lamb, to come and live among us, in this sinful world, but remain perfect and pure, all for us.
But we rejected this perfect child, this light unto the world, the best gift anyone could ask for. We rejected him, rejected his word, and his promises for us. We rejected him to the point that we crucified him. He was crucified on a cross, because we wanted this world, all for us.
But his death was our second chance. Because he died, we don't have too. Well maybe to this world, but, because of his death, we are promised eternal life, in a place of perfection. He died, so that we could live, completely selflessly. all for us.
And for this promise, can we not for once make this all about us? all about our worldly needs and desires? He did this all for us,
so i want to live all for him.
