And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. 1 Corinthians 13:13 (NIV)
We should have faith, hope and love in our lives but, the Bible tells us that love is the greatest of them. God shows us a lot of love when he sent his son to die for our sin. Jesus cost God the most, nothing else would have seem such a sacrifice for us. If God had sent one his Angels to die, it wouldn’t have been such a sacrifice for God. When Jesus died, God knew why he had sent Jesus to die, and he was willing to let his only son Jesus to die. When God seen his one and only son on the cross in such agony. He didn’t send one his Angels to save him. God’s heart broke when Jesus died. It was hard for God to watch his son die such agonising death.
At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook, the rocks split and the tombs open. The bodies of many holy people who had died were raised to life. Matthew 27:51-52 (NIV)
When Jesus died the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. No one on earth torn it, it was God and God also made the earth shack and the rocks split, the tombs also open and out came the bodies of many holy people who had died. What a sight it would have been to see. When the centurion was this he said truly this was the son of God. The centurion after seeing what had happen believe that Jesus was the son of God. God was using it to try to show that Jesus was who he said he was, the son of God.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son, that whosoever believes in him shall not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16 (NIV)
This verse talks about God's great love, that showed to the world by sending Jesus to die for us. God loved his son Jesus and the world so much that he send him to take our sin. Jesus loved his father, he often spoke of him. Jesus also must have loved the world too.
He went away a second time and prayed, “My father, if it is not possible for this cup to be taken away unless I drink it, may your will be done.” Matthew 26:42 (NIV)
Jesus pray that he would not have to take the cup, but he also prayed may your will done. Jesus was willing to die for our sins, so that he make a way for us. As Christians we should do as God would want us to do. We should be very thankful for what the Father and Son did for us, for both it was very hard to do it. Their great love show towards us, should be show of in our lives. We should go around with the same love that God had. Will you do as God and his son Jesus did?
