“Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.” (1 John 4 v 10)
According to scientist, the average distance between the Moon and the Earth is 238,857 miles. The Moon’s orbit is not a perfect circle, it is an ellipse. So the distance is not constant, there is a minimum and a maximum. The distance actually fluctuates between 225,622 and 252,088 miles.
Would you go out of your way to help somebody, if they were in need?
Stop for a moment and think how far God went out of His way to save mankind.
Would you be prepared to travel 10, 100, 1000, 10000 or even 100000 miles to help someone, and then sacrifice your own life in the process to rescue them?
God Loves You
So clearly, God demonstrated His great and boundless love for us, while we were yet in sin. He loved the world of human beings, as sinful and wicked as they were! Even when Adam sinned in the Garden of Eden, God still came looking for him. God showed His love and compassion by covering Adam and Eve’s nakedness with animal skin.
Today, you can have faith in His love for you, and live with the confident assurance that God loves you. His love for you is absolutely beyond human comprehension. Now that you know how much God loved the world of sinners, what is your response?
While we sinners are swimming against the tide, God is always on shore ready to throw us a lifeline.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart. Never rely on what you think you know. Remember the Lord in everything you do, and He will show you the right way.
The route to our destination is not always a straight one. Sometimes we go down the wrong road, we travel in the wrong direction, we get lost, we occasionally turn back. It does matter which road we embark on, and it does matter that we complete the journey! Get to know him, through His Son, JESUS CHRIST.
