"We love Him because he first loved us." I John 4:19
"For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life." John 3:16
Those two statements are some of the most important verses in the Bible. They show us that God has pursued us. We did not come after Him. He came after us!
He loved us first.
He sought us first.
HE CHOSE US!!
God SO LOVED us that He sacrificed His only Son for us. And now we have a choice. We can CHOOSE to accept that precious gift that He offers through His Son, Jesus. Or, we can walk away. We can CHOOSE the world, self, and to live life the way we choose.
I CHOOSE JESUS.
I choose JESUS because He first chose me.
I choose JESUS because He first loved me.
I choose JESUS because He chose the nails that held Him to that cross.
I choose JESUS because he chose to lay down his life for me.
I choose JESUS because HE chose me for all eternity.
What is YOUR choice today?
JESUS................or the world?
