"It's About Us"

"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." John 3:16

We always say that it's about God and not us. It's about Him receiving the glory. It's about Him be exalted. It's about doing His will not our own. It's about what He wants not what we want. And, yes, this is true-- it is about Him. But, as for as He is concerned, and from His perspective, it's about "us".

The whole reason Jesus came to earth was about us. He lived His life showing us what the Father was like. He demonstrated the character of God while He was here in order to show us what a loving Father God He is. The whole reason why Jesus went through the pain and shame of the cross was because of us. It wasn't for His own sins- He had none. It was all about us.

It was about the Father's love for us. It was about His desire that we be with Him one day in heaven. It was about us becoming His children. It was about Him being able to lavish His love on us. Everything He did was for us- so that we could be redeemed, so that we could have a relationship with Him, so that we could have forgiveness of sins, so that we can have everlasting life, so that we can know Him.

On His end what He did, He did for us. On our end what we do, we do for Him.

Have a great day. As for as we are concerned, it is all about Him and not about us. But as for as He's concerned, what He did was about us.
