“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.” ~ John 3:16
If you’ve ever read John’s Gospel, these words of Jesus are all the more startling when you know where this road of love will lead. For God so loved the world… that’s you… that’s me. And His love is a giving love… that He gave His only begotten Son. And this gift will rend the Father’s heart, as He looks away when our sin is heaped upon the Son’s shoulders upon that cross. …that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. His death for our life. This is the gift of love.
As you come tonight to reflect upon the cross and worship the Christ, come with joy and gratitude, knowing the cost He paid for your life. Come with expectancy, knowing that Jesus love is a transforming love. Come with freedom, knowing that your sin and transgression has been paid in full. Come and experience the reality that God so loved YOU that He gave His only begotten Son!
