John 3:16 states, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”

A six-year-old girl became deathly ill with a deadly disease. Her blood type further complicated the situation. Her brother qualified and gladly agreed to being a donor for his sister. The boy lay quietly on the bed until the transfusion was finished. Upon completion of the transfusion, the doctors thanked the boy for saving his sister’s life. 

He began to cry quietly. He asked the doctor, “Doctor, when do I die?”

The doctor immediately understood the magnitude of what the brother had done for his sister and reassured him that he would not die. He was amazed at the brother’s courage and asked him, “Why were you willing to risk your life for her?”

The brother responded, “Because she is my sister and I love her.”

Two thousand years ago, Jesus Christ, the Son of God, went to the cross and shed His blood to redeem us from our sins. He did this because of His great love for us. Had He not done that, we would certainly perish in our sins.

In order for His blood to be applied on your behalf, you must receive Him as your Savior by faith. Have you done that?

Think about it.
