What Does 1 John 4:14 Mean?

We have seen and testify that the Father has sent the Son to be the Savior of the world.

1 John 4:14(NASB)

Verse Thoughts

God's love is proclaimed throughout the Scriptures, and from Genesis to Revelation, we discover that God is love. We discover that His is a love that is beyond human comprehension, and a love that is rooted and grounded in His eternal righteousness, justice, long-suffering, and grace. His love for mankind is proved at the Cross of Calvary, for God sent His only begotten Son into the world to die for the sin of the whole world. And the love of God is perfected in all who believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, for we are saved by grace alone - through faith alone - in Christ alone.

It was John, the beloved apostle who spent over three years living with the Lord, walking in His gracious footsteps, watching His godly actions, and observing His dependent prayer-life, who told us: "God is love." And John was the one that testified: "The Father has sent His Son to be the Saviour of the world."

During His life on earth, Jesus Himself had much to say about the love of God. But Jesus did not simply preach the love of God, He proved God's love by giving up His life as a ransom for many.

Should not we who have been saved by grace alone - through faith alone- in Christ alone, give testimony of God's great love for mankind by giving up ourselves to His service until we can say as He did: "Father Thy will be done in my life, to Your praise and glory."

My Prayer

Heavenly Father, thank You for Your amazing grace and abounding love, by sending the Lord Jesus to be my Saviour. He took onto Himself the sins of the whole world so that all Who believe on His name might not perish but have everlasting life. To Him be all praise and glory, forever and ever, AMEN.
