Scripture Reading: John 3:16-21
Love is a tricky thing. Love can bring us immense joy. Love can also bring us unbearable pain. We can love things or people which are good for us. We can also love people or things which bring us harm. Sometimes the same thing can bring both joy and pain.
“For God so loved the world…”
God loved the world…
He loved it so much He sent His Son.
He sent His Son to not only show His love, but to show us what true love really is. God’s love draws people to Him. God’s love pulls people out of the shadows and into His light. By responding to God’s love in Jesus Christ we are shown the what wonderful gifts He has for us. The gift of eternal life. The gift of living in the presence of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, not only on this earth, but for all of eternity.
For God so loved the world, He came personally for you.
Lord God, thank you for loving me. Thank you for sending me Your Son, Jesus,
so I may experience this love like none other. Amen.
