God’s Love for You!
Jesus answered and said to her, “If you knew the gift of God, and who it is who says to you, ‘Give Me a drink,’ you would have asked Him, and He would have given you living water.”John 4:10 (NKJV)
I remember when I bought my first house. My ship was in the dry dock in Brooklyn, New York. My wife was stay with her parents in Douglasville Pennsylvania. She called a real estate agent in Virginia Beach, Virginia. My wife told him what we were looking for and gave him some information about us.
I left work early on Friday, Picked my wife up and we made it to Virginia late that night. On Saturday morning we met with the agent and he took us to look at houses. When we walked into the first house, it had everything my wife told him we were looking for and more. When I asked the price, it was far below the price we told him we wanted. The agent had already gotten us approved for a larger amount than we were paying so we signed the paperwork that day and moved in the next week. That agent was trying to help us because we were in the military. Today the real estate agents are trying to make a buck and won’t try to help you at all.
God is even better than that real estate agent. God wants to move us into a home that costs for more than we could ever afford. But God doesn’t get it financed for you like the real estate agent did. God will let his Son pay the price for you
God’s gift to the world wasn’t salvation, His gift to the world was the death of His only begotten Son on the cross at Calvary. Jesus died for our sins. A price we could never pay. Salvation was the result of that Gift.
Go ahead and get a drink like the women at the well did. Drink the everlasting water of salvation and remember it was God’s love for you that made it possible for you to drink. God’s love for this world is told in John 3:16. Go ahead and let God show you His love, it’s overwhelming!!!
