God Gave Himself

Here is a follow-up to my post yesterday on “…his only Son…” in John 3:16.  It is a case of finding someone who says it so much better than I (no surprise there) in fewer words.  Thank you John Stott:

“According to the Christian revelation, God’s own great love propitiated his own holy wrath through the gift of his own dear Son, who took our place, bore our sin and died our death. Thus God himself gave himself to save us from himself.
