God gave us His commandment so that mankind will learn to love Him. The Law however demands our whole love. But because of sin, mankind is not able to love God by keeping His commandment. Jesus therefore stepped in by revealing God’s love to the world. Through His death on the cross, Jesus defined God’s love for the entire human race. As we get absorbed into this awesome and inexplicable love of God, it drives an attitude of gratitude by keeping His commandments. I wish that you have this experience in 2013 as you read this article http://www.adventistworld.org/issue.php?issue=2013-1001&page=14.
Happy New Year to all of you!
