Mom took her son to one of the fast-food restaurants
children like so well.
When he was finished eating, he took his tray to
the garbage disposal.
Mom noticed that he studied the lid of the receptacle
for quite awhile.
Then he came running back to the table exclaiming,
"MOM! I know how to spell 'garbage'! It's 'P U S H!”
At that time, others were giggling about his mistake.
But Mom knew that later, under her guidance and care,
he would learn how to spell garbage.
Right now, he needed something ELSE.
So she smiled and asked if he knew what L O V E spelled.
He admitted he did not.
She reached and gave him a big hug.
Then she said, "That's what L O V E spells.
It's how I feel about YOU!”
6 For when we were yet without strength,
in due time Christ died for the ungodly.
7 For scarcely for a righteous man will one die:
yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die.
8 But God commendeth his love toward us, in that,
while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
9 Much more then, being now justified by his blood,
we shall be saved from wrath through him.
LIGHT from the WORD.
Parents love their children.
Even when they go off and make foolish mistakes at times.
Parents demonstrate love for their children through caring,
kindness, hugs, and especially faithfulness.
And in doing so, parents EXHIBIT the love of God for his children.
When we were dead in trespasses and sins (See Eph. 2:1-9),
God demonstrated his MERCY and GRACE!
He came in the Person of Christ to die for our sins!
God's love is a giving love through which we might
obtain benefit! (See John 3:16)
In giving His life as a ransom for ours, Christ not only
He also showed what He has "prepared for them that
believe". (See 1Cor. 2:9)
What God has prepared for us is EVERLASTIN LIFE!
Mom, in the little story above, demonstrated to her son that
her LOVE was greater and more important than the giggles
She justified his actions through her concern, care and hugs.
For us, who believe in Christ, we become JUSTIFIED by His LOVE!!
Ain't God GOOD?!
