I John 3:1
“Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God…”
Oh to be bestowed such love!
Imagine being separated from the glory and companionship of God, how miserable life must have become! If you were in the place of God, would you even be willing enough to love someone unconditionally still even though the person has betrayed you or made a fool out of you? Would you risk trusting that person once more?
Well, think again. God was willing and even called us His children, setting aside our brokenness. And for Him to call us HIS SONS after we have abandoned and turned our backs on him, it was selfless! He was willing to accept us again and was ever-ready to BESTOW upon us His love!
Oh how blessed this fallen race!
Let us realize how privileged we are to be bestowed such great love! It is thus but natural that we also bestow this love to those who we think least deserves it, for after all, you are LOVED and nothing/no one can change that!
