This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him.. (1 John 4:9)
This short verse packs quite an enormous amount of significance. God has always been there to guide us, even when we didn’t know He was doing it. He continues to assist us in ways we may never realize, all because of His love for us. And as we know, He sent His only Son to this world to offer us salvation.
Many things about God are quite a mystery. We could never begin to understand the way in which He works and thinks. If there is anything at all that we can understand for sure, though, we can know He loves us. For that, we love Him. There is nothing we could ever do to make God stop loving us, because certainly we did nothing to make Him start.
God is concerned about everything we do. He celebrates our victories and cries with us during our difficult times. As we see in 1 John 4:9, God proved His love for us long before we were ever born! How could we not love such a God who first loved us so much?
