“For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him, should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16)
The key phrase: “For God so loved the world that He gave…” (bold added)
To love is really to give…to sacrifice…for the good of another.
God sacrificed everything when He gave us His best…His one and only Son…to die in our place to pay for our sins…that whoever turns from his/her sins…and puts their trust in the Savior…will be forgiven of their sin and receive the gift of eternal life.
That message has rocked the world for 20 centuries, resulting in more than two billion followers of Jesus who have ‘turned the world upside down” though their changed lives and good works.
As you contemplate this pure, selfless gift of love, please remember Ukraine in your prayers.
We know that God’s “gift” is the answer for these 45 million wonderful people who have experienced so much hardship over the last 1500 years—as they turn to Christ and receive his love, mercy and new life by faith!
