“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son…”
I remember when Bianca was about three years old, I used to read to her the book, Guess How Much I Love You. It was one of our favorite bedtime stories. And everytime I would get to the part where I would read and say, I love you right up to the moon and back, it never fails, she would squeal in delight. If children and most especially we adults can easily relate to this measure of love, then we won’t find it hard also to understand the magnitude of God’s perfect love when He gave up His only son for us. This got me thinking, as the receiver of such love, how far can I really stretch myself, how far am I really willing to go, and what can I really give up for the Lord to return back this big favor? And then I see a list of endless possibilities and so I leave this note and challenge to myself: Give it up. Offer it up. For the Lord.
