He gave you life and breath!
He gave you free will!
We have sinned and broken God's law!
He sent his son, Jesus Christ, to take our punishment!
Christ died for our sins, he was buried and he rose again on the third day!
God will forgive you if you turn from your wrong doing and wrong beliefs and accept Jesus Christ as your Saviour.
You owe God everything but if you got the chance what would you ask Jesus? Would you try to out-smart him as the people in today's passage did? Or would you ask him why, if he is God, he came down to earth to die for ungrateful people like us? Why he chose to take on our suffering and death? Why he left the utopia of heaven to come to a sick and sad world like this.
The answer is already in the Bible - He came because he delights to have company with people like us. Because he loved his Father, in heaven, and God loved this world and sent his Son to be the Saviour of the world. The bottom line is he loved us because he chose to love us.
Amazing grace, how sweet the sound!
Here is love vast as the ocean!
Herein is love not that we loved God but that he loved us........
