“He Laid Down His Life For Us”

“He Laid Down His Life For Us.”
(1st John 3:16)

Here is the most profound, sublime, and glorious truth that human tongue can speak, proclaimed in seven simple, one-syllable words. There is not a long, complicated word in the entire sentence!

GREAT THOUGHTS can always be expressed in simple words, such as “Thank you,” or “I love you.” But FEEBLE THOUGHTS need to be dressed up in rhetoric and fine language. Someone said, “Today’s intellectuals need Latin words and confusing sentences to express their feeble ideas, but God’s servants are always content to preach the gospel in the Spirit and WITH THE UNDERSTANDING!”

We do not preach for admiration but for edification. We do not preach to impress men but to instruct them.

Henry Mahan – 1986
