Sacrificial Love

Romans 8:31 - What shall we say to these things? If God be for us who can be against us? V32. - He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us ALL, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things? 

Wow! How good God is to us! Dwell on these two scriptures today. Chew on them as a cow chews the cud. Over, and over again. 

Why should we carry our cares around when we know that our Heavenly Father is for us? Why get disheartened? He gave us his precious son Jesus knowing in advance how much he would suffer, yet he sent him anyway. Now us humans sacrifice for our children or loved ones in areas of finance, work, time etc. But would you be willing to give that loved one up for let's say a murderer? No way! Not me!

Well God willingly gave up his Son for all of humanities sins to buy us back to himself. He loves us that much and if he gave us Jesus freely he will give us all good things. Now what we think is good and what God knows is good for us can be two different things, ideas, or concepts. He is interested in developing our character.  In order to do that sometimes the answer from him is no. In those times of disappointment remember he is always working together for your good. (Romans 8:28). 

Down the road of life is a bigger and better blessing for you! Remember we live in a lost and dieing world so the battle is great, but we serve the greater one! Trust him with all your heart and he will direct your paths. Because God gave us all lets give all of ourselves back to him!
