For the next few weeks we are sharing all of the feasting scriptures Fellowship is enjoying this year. Previous feasts are available at the Fellowship website (http://www.fcchosengeneration.com/).
The Cost of Love
16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
Someone once said that “love don’t cost a thing.” Well tell that to those who have given up so much for those they love. Many parents have given up on their dreams to help a child fulfill their's. Many soldiers have given up their freedom and yes, life for the country they love.
Here in this set of scriptures we see how God Himself gave His only begotten Son; to a world and a people that He loves.Yes, love costs; in most cases it costs a great deal more than what it receives back in return. This week take some time to reflect on what was truly given for you and I. How great that love truly is. Not only did God the Father give in His love toward us, but so did God the Son.
9 As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love.
10 If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father's commandments, and abide in his love.
11 These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.
12 This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you.
13 Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
Yes love costs, but it’s free to receive. But it cost to give. How much are you and I willing to receive the love of God - When it cost Him so much to give?
