John 3:16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life.
This text is the greatest love story in the history of the world. NO GREATER LOVE CAN BE FOUND!
I have often heard people say “what love has to do with it” and I often say to myself “LOVE” has everything to do with it.
It is because of “LOVE” for humanity that God sent His son, Jesus, to die for the sins of the world.
Jesus died a horrible and violent death just to prove the depth of His love for undeserving you and I.
In looking at the Cross, it may appear that God was nowhere to be found because of the way in which Jesus suffered and died, but the truth of the matter is the fact that God orchestrated the entire events, he was there in Bethlehem and He was there at the Cross. Nothing that Jesus went through was surprise to God. God allowed it out of His love for you and I.
God-Elohim, the Supreme, Almighty and all Powerful God of the universe, God of ALL creation, sent Jesus to take our place in suffering and death on a Cross so that we can live again.
Willful sin by our first parents, Adam and Eve caused us to die a spiritual death but through Christ Jesus, we can live again! Not separated from God, but in a right relationship with Him.
To those of us, upon the confession of our faith in Christ Jesus, we WILL NOT perish, but instead, we WILL have everlasting life.
Perhaps you never accepted Jesus as your “Savior”, I want you to know that the door to salvation is open to you even right now where you are. It does not matter how far or how deep in sin you have gone, it does not matter if you are a drug addict, a prostitute, atheist, an adulterer, liar, thief, fornicator, cheat, criminal, prisoner, drug dealer, whoremonger, alcoholic, business man or woman, rich, poor, blind, disabled, sick, well , rejected, abandoned, or any other condition, God IS willing and able to forgive you of ALL your sins and He is willing to accept you right NOW just as you are if you are willing to confess that you are a sinner in need of God’s help. By faith if you confess and repent of your sins against God and believe, the Word of God says you shall be saved.
The good news for all of humanity around the world today is that salvation is not conditioned on man’s opinion, status or anything else. Salvation is conditioned on the Word of God. For scripture declares that the Word of God is the power unto salvation. NOTHING ELSE!
Romans 10:9-10 If you openly declare that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by openly declaring your faith that you are saved.
Romans 5:19-For just as through the disobedience of the one man the many were made sinners, so also through the obedience of the one man the many will be made righteous.
When God forgives us He removes our guilt, He removes our sins as far as the east is from the west and then He reconciles us back to a right relationship with Him through Christ Jesus by faith.
Isaiah 55:6 Seek the LORD while you can find him. Call on him now while he is near.
Still living in sin even now and have convinced yourself that there is no hope for you? Not so!! If you are breathing, you still have time right now as you read this blog to repent and make your confession unto the Lord God by faith.
If you are contemplating and procrastinating, the time to accept your free ‘GIFT” of salvation that was made available to you over 2k years ago at the Cross is now!
Whomever you are, wherever you may be, whatever your condition, God sends His John 3:16 love letter to you on today.
The question to be answered is what will you do with God’s love letter to you? Will you receive it by faith or would you reject it and suffer in eternity for it?
Life of death? Eternity with God or eternal separation from God? Which have you chosen?
What response will God’s love letter have in your heart from this day forward?
The door to the saving “GRACE” of God for your soul is wide open!
