Verse Of The Day : But God has made clear his love for us, in that, when we were still sinners, Christ gave his life for us. Romans 5 : 8 ( BBE ).

LISTEN: The sacrificial death of Christ on the cross is the height of God’s love for man.  He didn’t spare his only begotten Son but gave him up for our sins ( Romans 8 : 32 ). Jesus Christ bore the weight of our sins on the cross by reason of his Father’s unspeakable love, and by his stripes we were healed ( Isaiah 53 : 5 ): what a privilege!  From human perspectives it is difficult to love those who hate and reject you, but easier to love in return those who love you. However, God is not like human, he loves even the unlovable. The love of God is agape, the God kind of love. God’s kind of love bothers itself with the welfare of others and cares to assist unconditionally.  The love of God to us is without conditions or reservation; in Christ, God gave his all. He loved us and still loves  us in spite of our sins and misdeeds. Therefore, it will be the height of injustice to reject his love.

He created us in his own image, therefore will not allow us to live at the mercies of the devil.  For this reason, he gave up his only begotten Son to save us even when we didn’t regard him. His love for us cost him the very life of his Son and subsequent purchase of our redemption: and through him, he gave us assurance of eternal life if we believe in him to the very end. What a privilege!  (John 3 :16).

Beloved, the love of God expressed by the sacrificial death of Christ is unspeakable. The scripture makes it clear that because God could not hold back his Son, but sacrificed him, he will give us everything and anything with Christ (Romans 8 : 32). Are you trusting Him for something? A business deal, fruit of the womb, Job, marriage, healing from sicknesses and diseases, etc? Just believe him, because he gave up Christ for our sake, he will equally give us all things with Christ.

Daily Task
Don’t neglect the love of God for you, accept him and receive your blessings today.

Blessed Father, I acknowledge your love for my life and everything around me, help me to accept, believe and serve you as LORD of my life, in Jesus’ name, amen.

Reflection: The foolishness of man is in rejecting the love of God.



  1. Thank you my brother for such a sincere sharing of the uconditional love
    of God to apoint that He gave. Not borrowed but gave ys His only begotten son. Christ Jesus the son.

    God bless you and keep you. Keep on sharing His devine love and a free gift to all. By the way. Fod outstretched this millinia to make it possible for more people to come in this boat of grace.

    Just like the time of Noah. People scorn, eat, merry and re-merry and something that is dengerous, ministers of the Word have also turned to be lovers of themselves.
    They love money more that Christ and His commission.

    All these things are pointing to the window of grace and challenging the anger of God but when we repent He fully forgives us and through all of our sins into His sea of forgetfulness.

    Now, the Church must repent and go out and preach so people can come in the ark of grace.

    There’s no more much time to waste. God bless you dear brother.
