Summary

God so loved the world that he gave. He showed us that love is most wonderfully demonstrated in giving, in dying to our selves. It was at a time when the Roman empire, with its dominant self promoting life style, was spreading throughout Judea that God gave his Son. Jesus brought a completely different example and approach to life to this world. He came to give himself up on a cross for the sins of those who were dominated by their sinful self-seeking life. His kingdom is based on completely different principles. Jesus said, ” If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. For whoever will save his life will lose it: and whoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.”
