TITLE: God So Loved The World

When I think about how God so loved the world He gave His only begotten Son, I canít help but wonder if people would admit this is very difficult to understand especially when they have children of their own.

I have two precious sons that I cherish. I couldnít imagine sacrificing their lives to show my love for humanity. Yet, I have a God I love dearly who was able to do that for me. It was apparent this God loves me and I know I love Him so what are we actually saying to each other.

I searched my heart to understand exactly what was going on between God and I that made it love between us and I came up with a word that gave me understanding of His love for humanity. Instead of using the word love, I realized what we shared was a direct connection from heart to heart.

God was able to sacrifice His son because He had a connection to humanity that gave Him the certainty that Jesus would plug us into the reality of His love. God knew there was not anything in this universe that would separate Him from His son not even death itself. Jesus was conscious of God and in full agreement in His plan to save the world, the mission began with certainty we would join them in eternity.

Iíve learned love is a conscious connection that can never be broken. Suffering of Jesusí life was the introduction of love. The whole time the world was disconnected from Godís love. Jesus was fully connected and able to do His will. Jesus wanted us to know each time the whip was struck against his skin, the world lacked love and a conscious connection to God and He was going to do something about it. When he resurrected from the grave, he plugged us into the reality of Godís love. Whether we choose to become conscious of it or not is our choice. The love is always there.

I liked the idea of a "connection" and Jesus "plugging" us into His love. Then comes the surge of power, right? :)
There are run-on sentences that make this a bit difficult to understand. I had to read and re-read to catch the drift.
Thanks for sharing, though!
