MOST is a Czech film directed by Bobby Garabedian and was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Short Film in 2003. MOST vividly portrays God’s greatest offering of love, sacrifice, hope, and forgiveness known to man. I was greatly moved by it. And I would like to share it with you.
“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” (John 3:16).
The supreme expression of divine love is the Father’s gift of His own Son. In 1 John 3:1 he exclaims again, “Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us.” Words fail him to express the depth of that eternal, changeless love, and John simply invites men to “behold” it.
“Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends” (John 15:13).
The extent of that love Jesus revealed at the cross. That love led Him to lay down His life for us “While we were yet sinners” He died for us (Romans 5:6–8). The love that God exercised toward us was not a response to any love we had for Him, for we were His enemies “Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us” (1 John 4:10).
The infinite price that was paid for our redemption reveals not only the wonderful love of God but also the high value that God places on the human soul. And since God loves us so much and was willing to pay an infinite price for our justification, surely He will keep that which has been so dearly bought. All we need to do is stay connected to Him daily by studying His word and prayer.
