For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish, but would have eternal life. John 3: 16
When I read this passage, I think of God loving us so much that he sacrificed his son Jesus to save our souls. I also remember a passage in the Old Testament, Genesis 22, when Abraham was willing to sacrifice his son, Isaac, for God. God sent an angel or messenger down and stopped him from killing his son because of his great love for his God. We should all have the faith Abraham had for God. The passage reads “everyone who believes in him . . .would have eternal life”, this means you need to trust and love God with your whole heart to receive eternal life. There are a lot of people who hear this passage and know they are sinners but still refuse him. Go out, love and help your neighbor and with your faith bring people closer to God. DO NOT take the easy way out.
Prayer: Almighty God, thank you for sending your only Son to love and die for us. Help us keep our faith that we might pass through the door to your heavenly kingdom. Through our Lord, Jesus Christ. Amen.
