Gripped By God’s Love

1 John 4:8-10 tells us that God is love. He explains this statement by saying, “This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. You see Jesus didn’t die just to give us peace and a purpose in life. He died to save us from the wrath of God. He died to reconcile us to a holy God. Because we were alienated from him because of our sins. He died to deliver us from the penalty of sin and the punishment of everlasting destruction. We are so blessed that God made a way! Are we aware of how much God loves us? We are gripped by God’s love!
