“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

Most of you just said that verse in your head along with me. It’s probably the most popular Bible verse ever! And rightly so! The Bible says God loved us so much that He gave His only son! This isn’t a new concept, but goodness, it’s so powerful.

Those of you with children: I want you to think about giving up your own son or daughter. For someone who is undeserving. Ungrateful. Someone who would make a million mistakes. Someone who would turn his/her back on you at times. Someone who would even potentially deny your existence!

What love! What great love! That God would give up His beloved. His cherished child. His very own son. I know I wouldn’t/couldn’t make such a selfless sacrifice. You likely wouldn’t either.

Think on this tonight. And then thank God for His unmatched kindness, grace, loyalty and love toward you!
