Remember to take time to pray & read the entire passage before you begin.
For God so loved the world
that he gave his one and only Son,
that whoever believes in him shall not perish
but have eternal life.
- What are God’s motives?
- Who is included as the object of His love?
- As a result of His love what does God do for us (John 19, Romans 5:6-11)?
- Who has the option of salvation?
- What is the result?
- Write down a reaction to this amazing love.
We can be certain that we are included in that all encompassing love of God. Christ died for the WORLD and EVERYONE has the invitation to accept His gift of grace and love of Jesus Christ. Christ died for each one of us while we were still sinners – we don’t have to get cleaned up or make ourselves “right”. We just have to be willing to believe in the saving work of Christ on the cross. The only exclusive part of that is your choice to include or exclude yourself.
May the all encompassing love of God be real to you today. May you be able to feel how long and wide and deep is His love for you and for the entire world.
