“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son… (John 3.16a)
to reveal who God is and what he’s like,
to help us understand His power and authority,
to bring God’s kingdom TO us,
to teach us how to live,
to demonstrate His love is for us,
to give us hope,
to help us discern the darkness around us that we might be overcomers through Christ,
to save us from hell
to love us
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son…”
knowing Jesus would suffer horribly,
knowing Jesus would die painfully,
knowing we would continue to sin.
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3.16)
Nobody else can love like this. Like God loves.
NO ONE can love you and me like God loves us.
Almighty God, we open our hearts to You. We want to be overwhelmed by Your amazing demonstration of love for us, for our families, for the world. We want to be overcome by Your love…. that our response will be loving You MOST.
