For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16
Before the coming of Jesus the son of God to ameliorate us from our sins we were a problematic society filled with sins and people following the mosaic laws but God had a soft spot in his heart for us. The advent of sin begun when Eve was deceived into eating the forbidden fruit at the garden of Eden by the Serpent. It is said that that caused enlightenment in the eyes of human beings that they realized they were naked, symbolically that means they gained wisdom to know good and evil and their disobedience to God was the beginning of their downfall. (Genesis 3)
God got really angry and banished man out of the luxurious life of the garden of Eden and send them out to till and toil in the land and eat from their sweat (Genesis 3:17). He even cursed woman to feel pain at childbirth and cursed the serpent to crawl on the ground to eat dirt. We may be familiar with the part where he cursed the relationship between the serpent and woman and her offsprings (Genesis 3:14-16). However, did that end the love he has for us? No! he made them cloths from hide to hide their nakedness.
During the time of Noah, when the people had turned against him and their transgressions worthy to be solved by wiping them out using a great flood, God still made Noah build an arc and he saved a piece of humanity(Genesis 6:9-22). What does that tell you? That even though God is angry with us and wants to punish us, he sends us a warning first then a solution after which he brings down his wrath.
God send Moses to save the Israelites while they were in the hands of the pharaoh of Egypt. He had heard their cry and wanted to take them back home in Israel(exodus 3:7 going down). He wanted to save his chosen people but didn’t they forget about him while in their journey and worshiped a golden calf? yes they decided to make one and worship it(exodus 32) Surprising how god works, he still forgave them anyway.
All the same God has always loved us that’s why he brought Jesus his only son to bring us salvation in our time of need. He confirmed this during his baptism when he said:
“This is my son, whom I love;with him am well pleased.” (Matthew 3:13-17)
We needed to be saved and through the blood of Jesus we received the key to salvation. Salvation was made individualistic and the world rejoiced when the son of man conquered death and ascended to heaven. Surely God loves us that,s why he sent us a solution and that is Jesus Christ the son of man.
Hope you have been motivated that even though we think God does not care about us, remember he does. He watches us from his throne in heaven and really cares about us and can do anything to come to our aid. He is loving, he is compassionate and there is no other like him. He is our father and loves us in a way that we sometimes might forget. Our god is always there for us, so I encourage you my reader in your moment of doubt, call upon his name and for sure he will answer you.
