God’s Giving Nature Shines Brightest On Easter

Hidden Nuggets Series #37 – “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son; that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”  John 3:16

a cross stands on a hill with a sunset in the backgroundDo you love to give? Ever wonder where that desire comes from?

I’m quite sure it’s a character quality God possesses Himself and bestowed on mankind during the days of creation so many years ago. The book of Genesis describes how we are created in His image. It would seem a logical conclusion that God passed on His giving nature to humanity during that creative process.

How can I be so confident God is an extreme giver? It’s because of verses from the Bible, like the most famous one of all:

“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son; that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16)

We see in this verse that God gave. He didn’t receive or take anything from us. He gave something very valuable so that humanity would get the chance at a relationship with Him. It’s such a staggering concept – giving up your only Son to die for the sins of mankind – it hardly makes sense. Never could you or I have come up with this kind of plan to bridge the gap between God and man.

I get the sense when I read the Bible that God didn’t do this because He had to but because He wanted to out of His great love for us. It gave Him great joy to be able to offer this free gift in the way He did. It gives Him even greater joy when we choose to accept it.

Tomorrow is Easter Sunday, the day Christians celebrate the giving nature of God and the sacrifice His Son Jesus made for us. I hope you will find your way to a church somewhere or tune into a live podcast to learn about and celebrate the incredible giving nature of God. His desire for you is peace and joy and the sure hope of eternity in heaven one day.

There is no time like the present to start that journey.

Happy Easter!
