Martin Luther called it, "The minature gospel."
Makes Satan shudder.
Lights pathway to heaven.
Let's break it down.
In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth." Genesis 1:1
"The fool has said in his heart, “There is no God.”
They are corrupt, they have committed abominable [a]deeds;
There is no one who does good." Psalm 14:1
God exists. There's no way not to see God. How can there be a creation without a Creator?
Love is mentioned 56 times in the book of John. Our imagination can't comprehend His love.
“The Lord did not set His love on you nor choose you because you were more in number than any of the peoples, for you were the fewest of all peoples,8 but because the Lord loved you and kept the oath which He swore to your forefathers, the Lordbrought you out by a mighty hand and redeemed you from the house of [a]slavery, from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt." Deuteronomy 7:7-8
God's love began before time and will last after time. A sinner cannot go to hell unloved.
The world means people. God loves everyone -- no qualifications, no limitations. There is no one God hasn't loved.
"THAT HE GAVE" giving with sacrifice; Himself -- His Son -- All He had.
Difference between our giving and His giving. He gave of Himself, gave all He had.
"for all [a]have sinned and fall short of the glory of God," Romans 3:23
Whosoever means me -- you -- us. Everyone's given this offer. God wants you.
"Jesus answered and said to him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born [a]again he cannot see the kingdom of God.” John 3:3
No one can see the kingdom of God without being born again. Every can have it.
"He saved us, not on the basis of deeds which we have done in righteousness, but according to His mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewing by the Holy Spirit," Titus 3:5
"And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved." Acts 4:12
"He who has the Son has the life; he who does not have the Son of God does not have the life." 1 John 5:12
Without Jesus we have nothing.
" *said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me." John 14:6
"SHALL NOT PERISH"
Heaven to gain.
We weren't cretaed to be expendable.
We are travelers in this foreign land. When you come to the Father I'll give you everything.
"Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life; he who believes in Me will live even if he dies," John 11:25
"In Him was life, and the life was the Light of men." John 1:4
"to whom God willed to make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory." Colossians 1:27
God paid what was necessary to redeem Me! He wants me. He wants all of us back. God doesn't put strings on His offer. Believe in Him.
