The Long And The Short Episode 12 – The Lord Will Provide
In this episode of The Long And The Short Of It, Pastor Kevin Inman and Brad Wilson discuss the Sunday evening Bible study of Genesis 22 at Grace Point at Eagle Heights Church in Orange, TX. This is an amazingly profound & prophetic passage of Scripture that is about a Father giving His only Son whom He loves. This is the first time the word “love” is mentioned in the Bible and it happens to concern a Father giving His Son! Reminds us of John 3:16! Tune in and see what we mean. Join us each Sunday night at 6:00pm at GPEHchurch.com.
 

The Long And The Short Episode 12 – The Lord Will Provide



Christ also loved you and gave Himself up for us

Here is the MacArthur Commentary Notes on Ephesians 5:2 pertaining to the offering of Christ.

5:2 Christ also loved you and gave Himself up for us. The Lord is the supreme example in His self-sacrificing love for lost sinners (4:32; Ro 5:8–10). He took human sin upon Himself and gave up His very life that men might be redeemed from their sin, receive a new and holy nature, and inherit eternal life (see note on 2Co 5:21). They are henceforth to be imitators of His great love in the newness and power of the Holy Spirit, who enables them to demonstrate divine love. a fragrant aroma.

Christ’s offering of Himself for fallen man pleased and glorified His heavenly Father, because it demonstrated in the most complete and perfect way God’s sovereign, perfect, unconditional, and divine kind of love.
