He Spared Not His Own Son

  1. He Spared Not His Own Son

    "He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things?"

    Romans 8:32

    If you ever feel that you are so insignificant that God does not care about you or that He does not want to listen to your prayers, you will be encouraged by Romans 8:32. There, you are assured that your heavenly Father loves you unconditionally. There was nothing so precious to Him that He would not give it up in order to provide for your salvation. When the Father gave His precious Son to save you, He proved once for all that His love is boundless.
    The apostle Paul concluded that if God would not spare His own Son in order to provide for our salvation, how would He not willingly give anything else at His disposal in order to care for us? He sacrificed so much to give us eternal life that we can rest secure in the knowledge that He also wants to give us abundant life (John 10:10).
    In light of what God did for us at the cross, should we not approach the throne of grace with confidence? God's response to our prayers is not based upon our worthiness but upon His love and grace. Our confidence in prayer comes not from who we are but from who He is. Nothing we could ask of Him could ever compare with the price He paid for us at the cross.
    How wonderful to know that God loves us so much! We can live with confidence and anticipation knowing that almighty God is willing not only to give us eternal life, but also to help us experience it fully!

  2. O, Praise GOD!
    Thank you for this sis! how beautiful and true!
  3. Well said!
  4. well said. We truly serve an ever loving God. I always get out of a spiritual rut when I acknowledge that it is me and not God that looks with pity on me.
    God loves us more that we can imagine. The prayer issues come from our flesh. When we dont feel holy its hard to be in the prescence of the most Holy.

    Hebrews 4:16 teaches us that we can always come boldly before Gods throne. Not is pity or in shame for our deeds. but boldly before our ever loving God who is always there, always listening

    Praise His Name!!!
  5. AMEN
