As a seasoned Christian, I grew very familiar with this verse in John Chapter 3 verse 16. “For God so Loved the world that He gave His only Begotten Son, Jesus …”
Sometimes to come to think of it, I thought its such a WASTE! (Why does God need to offer up his only son?)
Recently I came to know more about the commonly known flower – Rose. YES! The rose that symbolise LOVE, best gift during Valentines Days and Wedding Anniversaries!
The matter-of-fact is that it takes 30,000 rose petals to produce a single ounce of Rose essential oil! Oil is a very PRECIOUS commodity. Furthermore, every part of Rose can be used cosmetically. For instance, rose water (by-product of distillation), rose-hip oil (derive from rose fruit).
This taught me that indeed Jesus is the most precious and exquisite gift to us. Jesus’s anointing and blessings do not come by in a ‘cheap’ way.
With this little insight, I learn to appreciate Jesus even more!
May God Bless you.
