He Loved Us

It is Sunday “The Lord’s Day” and here is something to contemplate throughout the day. This verse has two key components; God’s Love and Christ’s Mission in Relation to God’s Love. 

Note this verse makes it clear true love (Biblical) is can ever anything we attempt to do on our own. God must Love us before we can consider Love. I offer John Gill’s Exposition of the Whole Bible on this for further consideration and reading.  

Secondly Christ’s propitiation, the Amplified Bible adds “[that is, the atoning sacrifice, and the satisfying offering]” was sent for our sins, yes, but equally so to prove and satisfy God’s love for His chosen children. I offer Alexander MacLaren’s Expositions of Holy Scripture for your consideration and reading.

I pray your day is blessed and God is Glorified.  

10 Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. 1 John 4:10

En esto consiste el amor: no en que nosotros hayamos amado a Dios, sino en que él nos amó a nosotros, y envió a su Hijo en propiciación por nuestros pecados. (RVR 1960)
