What Love Feels Like – John 3:16-17

Welcome to Scriptures for Life with TorahFamily.org. Taking time to focus on the Father’s way.

John 3:16-17
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.

I don’t know about you, but these were some of the first verses I ever memorized in Sunday School back when I was a child. Yet, I can honestly say I don’t believe I fully grasped it’s meaning at the time.

It wasn’t that YHWH just gave His son. It’s what He had to give son over to. A cruel death. Yet, even before His death, He was beat so bad that He was barely recognizable according to Isaiah 52:14.

May we never forget love is a verb. It’s something we do. Not what we feel. Love involves taking the hit for those you care about. So if you want to know what love feels like, think of what Yeshua felt as he was being beat beyond recognition. And then prayed for His abusers forgiveness.

Let this be a focus in your time of meditation throughout the day. Until next time, shalom!

Here's something interesting to consider:
