What Does 1 John 4:14 Mean?

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

1 John 4:14(ESV)

Verse Thoughts

God's love is proclaimed throughout the Scripture, and from Genesis to Revelation we discover that God is love, but His is a love that I 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, and John was the one that testified that the Father has sent His Son to be the Saviour of the world. But Jesus did not simply preach the love of God - He proved God's love, but 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 but 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

Thank You Father God for Your amazing grace and abounding love by sending the Lord Jesus to be my Saviour and taking on 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.
