The Cost of Love
Sin is often tolerated and sometimes even accepted. Not just in the world, but also by many Christians. If we understood the price that was paid for our sin, how much our sine really cost, we would have a much more visceral, and truthfully realistic, reaction to sin. We also live in a society where love is ridiculously over used and undervalued. We love pizza and we love the Cowboys. We live in a society where to love someone you must agree with them. And if you don’t agree with them, then you must hate them. But today, I want to share with you what real love is. Real love is sacrificial. The only reason we can and do love is because he first loved us, and today, we celebrate the greatest act of love that was ever committed. Jesus paid a horrific price for sin because of His love for us.
