GOD'S GREAT GIFT TO MAN
For God so loved..
Why did God give man this wonderful gift?
Because God loves man beyond our
comprehension of the word love.
God Agape's man.
Job 7:17 What is man, that thou shouldest
magnify him? and that thou
shouldest set thine heart upon
Romans 5:8 But God commendeth his love
toward us, in that, while we
were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
1 John 4:8 8 He that loveth not knoweth
not God; for God is love.
9 In this was manifested the
love of God toward us, because
that God sent his only begotten
Son into the world, that we
might live through him.
10 Herein is love, not that we
loved God, but that he loved us,
and sent his Son to be the
propitiation for our sins.
Rom 8:38‑39 38 For I am persuaded, that
neither death, nor life, nor
angels, nor principalities, nor
powers, nor things present, nor
things to come,
39 Nor height, nor depth, nor
any other creature, shall be
able to separate us from the
love of God, which is in Christ
Jesus our Lord.
Lets examine God's gift in three aspects.

every creeping thing that creepeth
upon the earth.

beginning of his way, before his
works of old.
23 I was set up from everlasting,
from the beginning, or ever the
24 When there were no depths, I
was brought forth; when there
were no fountains abounding with
25 Before the mountains were
settled, before the hills was I
26 While as yet he had not made
the earth, nor the fields, nor
the highest part of the dust of
27 When he prepared the heavens,
I was there: when he set a
compass upon the face of the
28 When he established the clouds
above: when he strengthened the
fountains of the deep:
29 When he gave to the sea his
decree, that the waters should
not pass his commandment: when he
appointed the foundations of the
30 Then I was by him, as one
brought up with him: and I was
daily his delight, rejoicing
always before him;
31 Rejoicing in the habitable
part of his earth; and my
delights were with the sons of
32 Now therefore hearken unto me,
O ye children: for blessed are
they that keep my ways.
33 Hear instruction, and be wise,
and refuse it not.
34 Blessed is the man that
heareth me, watching daily at my
gates, waiting at the posts of my

life, and shall obtain favour of

wrongeth his own soul: all they
that hate me love death.

of man ascend up where he was

to see my day: and he saw it, and

and hast thou seen Abraham?

verily, I say unto you, Before
Abraham was, I am.

me with thine own self with the
glory which I had with thee
before the world was.
B. His only begotten Son
Through Jesus many shall be made
the sons of God.
John 1:12 But as many as received him, to
them gave he power to become the
sons of God, even to them that
believe on his name:
But there is and ever will be only one
"only begotten Son" That is born of the
seed of the woman but also
His conception is by the Holy Spirit
Luke 1:35 And the angel answered and said
unto her, The Holy Ghost shall
come upon thee, and the power of
the Highest shall overshadow
thee: therefore also that holy
thing which shall be born of thee
shall be called the Son of God.
Isa 53:10 Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise
him; he hath put him to grief:
when thou shalt make his soul an
offering for sin, he shall see
his seed, he shall prolong his
days, and the pleasure of the
LORD shall prosper in his hand.
Christ voluntarily came

to be ministered unto, but to
minister, and to give his life a
ransom for many.

shepherd giveth his life for the
Heb 2:9 9 But we see Jesus, who was made a
little lower than the angels for
the suffering of death, crowned
with glory and honour; that he by
the grace of God should taste death
for every man.
10 For it became him, for whom are
all things, and by whom are all
things, in bringing many sons unto
glory, to make the captain of their
salvation perfect through

in the presence of the Lamb:

receiveth the mark of his name.
