David Jeremiah Today 5 February 2022 Devotional Message
The essence of the Christian Gospel is that God loves us so much that He provided a means by which we might not suffer the consequences of our sin: eternal death. But the mystery of God’s action is that, while His love alleviated our death, it required the death of Jesus. The death of Jesus—and His ultimate resurrection—led to our eternal life by conquering death. And it all began with God’s love.
All parents have had to explain to their children, at one time or another, that they are disciplining them because they are loved. The discipline is a way to keep the child from traveling a path that could lead to heartache in the future. Children ultimately learn that it was their parents’ love that helped them avoid a life of destruction—possibly even death. God even does that with us: “For whom the Lord loves He chastens” (Hebrews 12:6).
There are many facets to God’s love. Perhaps the greatest of them is that because we are loved, we are saved from death.
None walk so evenly with God, as they who are assured of the love of God.
