God is Love

In John 3:16, John reveals in a nut shell what the gospel is all about.  For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son that who believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.  This is passion week the holiest time in the Christian calendar.  On Friday we will be remembering the Lord’s broken body and shed blood as well as His death.  On Sunday we will be celebrating the resurrection.  These events secured us the most precious of all gifts, eternal life.  Out of all these events the message is clear.  God wants all men every where to be saved.  The events of Easter remind us that life is not about the accumulation of wealth and family.  it is not about being on this planet for a certain period of time so you can live your own selfish life.  It is about eternal and abundant life.  It is about eternity and where you will spend it.  God is not concerned about your job, money, possessions or other things we manage to jam into our lives.  For Him it is about eternity, doing His will, living for His glory and being in a right relationship with Him.  He wants you, not what you have or what you can give Him which by the way is nothing.  As we head into this passion week make it you passion to draw as close to God as you can and serve Him from a passion of love.
