GOD PROVED HIS LOVE
21st August 2020
Dr. Phil Ransom-Bello
KEY SCRIPTURE/MEMORY VERSE: John 15:13(NKJV)
Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends.
It is impossible to talk of the cross and what it demonstrates without talking about the love of God.
In fact, anytime the believer needs a proof of God’s love, all he/she needs to do is look at the cross because the highest demonstration of God’s love is not in any other thing but on the cross.
What does that tell you?
Never judge how God loves you by what you are going through, judge how God loves you by looking to the cross.
A friend once said, “If someone can buy you a Range rover, is it the newspaper he/she can’t buy for you?”
Look, if the cross actually happened, which is the highest demonstration of His love, is there anything that He won’t do for you?
I want you to take a minute or two to ponder on this. Think of the lengths God went through to prove His love for mankind, think about the gruesome, sacrificial death of Jesus on the cross and tell me if every other kind of love doesn’t pale in comparison to this?
Have you seen the way John 15:13 puts it? It says; “Greater love has no man than this, that he lays down his life for his friends!”
In other words, there is no greater love than the love that sacrifices it’s life for friends.
It is the greatest love of all.
Guess what? Jesus did that! He laid down His life for you.
This is the greatest expression of God’s love for us, dear friends.
And as the all-time popular scripture tells us, you must always know that God so loved the world, He so loved YOU that He gave His only begotten son so that anyone who believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life(John 3:16).
Oh how I pray that the revelation of the love of God as demonstrated on the cross comes alive in your heart and hits you strongly.
Beloved, God proved His love for you already. May this truth ring louder than any questions or doubt that circumstances may bring. You are loved by God.
Do I judge the proof of God’s love for me by my circumstances?
-I believe in the good news of the gospel. That in the giving of Jesus, I am now a beneficiary of God’s grace.
-The gospel is the grace of God. I am thankful for the grace of God.
-I have come into a progressive revelation of all that the grace of God reveals.
-The cross is the proof of God’s love for me.
-Because the cross happened, there is no length God’s love can’t go to for me.
-I look to the cross as my answer to circumstances that attempt to make me doubt God’s love for me.
-I have received the greatest love of all in the sacrificial dying of Jesus on the cross for me.
-I am loved for all-time and always because of the cross.
-The revelation of the love of God for me as proven by the cross comes alive in my heart and resonates every day of my life.
