Sunday's Thought!

John 3:16
(C) Allen Pearson Photography


"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

When I was growing up, it seemed like I was always learning the Scripture "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" It seemed like every grade in Sunday School, some classes in youth group and even some classes in young adult/college/career, I was learning this Scripture. Some of this is a little exaggeration but not by much.

I understood as a young child that this verse is one of the most important ones in the Bible. Why? It is the verse which expresses how much God really loves us. For God to give His only Son Jesus for me so that my sins are forgiven is truly amazing yet difficult to understand.

Why would God do that? I cannot provide an answer to this except that He loves each and every one of us. He forgives us for what we have done. He wants each of us to accept His forgiveness and be in heaven when we leave this earth. His Love is infinite and forever!
