“For GOD so loved the world that He GAVE His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.” (John 3:16-17 NKJV)

GOD is LOVE.” (1 John 4:16)

God gave. God=Love. LOVE GAVE!
What did Love give during the Passion week?

Love agonized in the garden.
Love sweat like great drops of blood.
Love was sorrowful and very heavy.
Love was exceedingly sorrowful, even unto death
Love knew the cup he was to bear and did it anyways.
Love asked Abba Father that he not have to bear the cup, three times.

Love said save me from this hour: but for this cause came I unto this hour.
Love said not my will but my Father’s.
Love found His best friends sleeping through his darkest hour.
Love was betrayed. 
Love said, “I AM.” Judas and the multitude went backward and fell to the ground.
Love did not call down  80,000 angels to fight the multitude against Him.

Love was mocked again.
Love was scourged.
Love was stripped and tied in a bending posture to a pillar.
Love was whipped with leather thongs, weighted with sharp pieces of bone or lead, which tore the flesh of both his back and his breast. Love was beaten and beaten and beaten

Love was robed in a scarlet robe.
Love was crowned with a crown of thorns.

Love said, “”Dear woman, here is your son,” and to the disciple, “Here is your mother.”
Love said, “My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?”
Love was mocked again by the soldiers at Calvary.
Love cried with a loud voice, “It is finished.” and gave up the ghost.
Love died so we could live.
Love declared our debt, “paid in full.”
Love was buried for three days and nights.
Love defeated death and the grave. 
Love arose as He as he said He would.
Love gave so that we may be saved. 
Love gave so that we could live.
Thank you, JESUS!

One thought on “LOVE GAVE”

  1. ❤❤❤ To wrap our mind around the reality of God’s love for us… can be mind-bogglingly, unimaginable, and hard to believe just how great is His love!! He so loved us that He gave His only begotten Son to be beaten almost beyond recognition and die on the cross so that a way would be provided to reconcile Himself to us. I cannot imagine the humiliation, agony and pain Jesus suffered knowing He must obey His Father’s will. I cannot imagine the pain God realized in what His Son was going through to provide a way of reconciliation of the world to Himself. What GREAT LOVE!!
