31 Days of Pure Joy. Day 30. Because of Love

Did you think I would write for 31 days about things found in scripture without including this one? Come on, give me a little more credit.
Have you ever asked yourself why this verse is so popular? Even people outside of the church may be able to quote this little gem. From toddlers to elders we inscribe this verse more on our hearts than any other…. For good reason.
Like I have said before, we all deserve death, it is the wages of sin, and the bible makes it clear that we have all sinned. Therefore if a=b well you know the rest. Thankfully we serve a God who doesn’t want to see that happen to us. So much so that he sent his Only Son to pay that price for us, to stand in our place and take our spot as a living sacrifice so that we don’t have to carry that sin anymore and have eternal life forever. Forever. His only son. For us. Because of love.
Whoa.
