Passage: 1 John 4:10

“Bring Forth The Best Robe…”

Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins

(1st John 4:10)

Nothing but the love of God could have provided the best robe. Our Lord did not come and suffer in the sinner’s stead to obtain the love of God. He came and died because of the love of God. “Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that He [first] loved us, and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins” (1John 4:10).
How many times have we received something, and what really made us love it and appreciate it was that it was given out of love. How many times after the service, I have seen some little child out in the field pluck a wild flower and bring it to his mother. I’ve never seen a mother refuse to receive it and value it, because she sees the love in that little face. Oh, if we could ever get hold of this truth, “the love of God,” how it would break these hearts of stone. “For God so loved the world, that he gave His only begotten Son.”
The best robe, God’s love provided it — The righteousness of Christ.
