“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life.” John 3:16
Think of a person who is either near-sighted or far-sighted. Either way, that individual needs help from a pair of eyeglasses. When he finds the right pair, one that fits according to his visual impairment, what seems to him like hazy images will now be finally made visible and clear. He can see shapes, sizes, and colors vividly and accurately.
When Christ first came down to Mankind, He brought with Him Jehovah’s love. Jesus is the evidence that God is not only Someone who sits on the throne of Heaven waiting to punish any one for his or her wrong deeds, but all the more, He is a God of unending and eternal love. He made visible the invisible character of God’s affection towards us. The Lord doesn’t want us to know and fear Him only because He is just and holy. He wants us to revere Him because of our love for Him.
