    [God] loved us and sent his Son as a propitiatory sacrifice for our sins.

    1 John 4:10.


    From the moment that Jehovah promised a future Savior, as recorded at Genesis 3:15, He viewed this sacrifice as already made. Then, some 4,000 years later, Jehovah at great personal cost sacrificed his only-begotten Son for the world of mankind. (John 3:16)

    How grateful we are for Jehovah’s unselfish love! We are able to show unselfish love because God created us in his image. Abel showed love for God by unselfishly offering the best of what he had. (Gen. 4:3, 4) Noah displayed unselfish love for his fellow man by preaching God’s message for decades despite not seeing any response from the people. (2 Pet. 2:5)

    Abraham put his love for God ahead of his own feelings when he was commanded to offer up his son Isaac. (Jas. 2:21) Like those faithful men, we want to show love, despite the challenges we face. w17.10 7-8 ¶3-4

    Memorial Bible reading: (Daytime events: Nisan 10) Matthew 21:18, 19;21:12, 13; John 12:20-50
