Last summer, I wanted to go to a Jeremy Camp and MercyMe concert that was in my area. Around the same time, my uncle came to visit from the other side of the world. I asked my mom if I could go, but sadly she said she would be too busy to take me. She also wanted me to spend time with my uncle.
That concert was something I sacrificed for my mom. So why did I choose to give it up? The answer is simple: love. Because I love my mom very much, I was willing skip that concert. Love makes sacrifices.
The most perfect example of this love is mentioned in Romans 5:8, which says, “But God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”
God made the biggest sacrifice of all; He gave us His only Son, Jesus, Who gave His life as a ransom for many. He didn't have to do this, but He chose to because He loves us more than we could ever imagine. Now that's true love! 💘
