“The Gift of Life” The 5th Commandment (Precious Life)

“The Gift of Life” The 5th Commandment (Precious Life)

Oftentimes, when I teach John 3:16 (“For God so loved the world”) to little children, I have them insert their own name into the verse. That is, “For God so loved James or Sarah or Jeffrey or Lili…..that He gave His only begotten Son, that if James or Sarah or Jeffrey or Lili believes in Him, they shall not perish but have eternal life.” Do you believe that? Do you believe that God created every single one of us, died for every single one of us in Jesus, knows every single one of us personally, and cherishes our lives individually? What does it mean to live in our physical world amidst those who share our physical life with this insight of the preciousness of every person? What does it mean to live in the knowledge of the gift that every life is precious to God?
