Would You Sacrifice Someone You Love to Save Others

October 16, 2008

 Yesterday I received in an e-mail a video clip that really touched my heart. I guess one reason why is that I have children of my own, and the video made me wonder if I would be willing to sacrifice their lives for someone else's--kind of like when God gave up Jesus for us. Do you know how hard it would be to sacrifice someone or something you love very much for someone else?

God sacrificed Jesus, His Son for you and me! He was willing to give up His Son so  that you and I could have the gift of eternal life. Let me share with you a passage from the NIV Bible. 1 John 4:9-11 says: 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. Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.

Wow! Those texts really sum it up for us. God sacrificed His Son for you and me. He loved us that much. We never know what kind of impact we could have on some ones  life for the sacrifice that we might make.

I want you to watch this video and think about what this man gave up to save other people. Christ is calling us to be willing to be a sacrifice for him and love others the way he loves us. He died that we might be saved.
