The truth about John 3:16.
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life” John 3:16
What if God Had not loved THE WORLD?
For God so loved the world.
Without his love there would be no hope at all. Our earth will be a dark planet hurtling thorough space without hope. Nothing to live for and no purpose for existence. Every death would be the end of personal hope, and every grave a place of despair. A world where prayers were but useless cries to the skies.
But God does love the world
Everything speaks of his love. Every sunrise, every blade of grass. Every fountain of water, every birth, the face of every child. The greatest demonstration of his love is the cross.
What if God had NOT GIVEN his son?
“that he gave is only begotten son”
God’s love would be frustrated without the cross. A real love demands loving. A man marries then works, provides, cares and a woman marries and gives of herself for her family. God has given His child and apart from this there would be no salvation.
What if God’s offer to salvation were not to the “whosoever”?
The wonderful word that is general yet particular. It embraces all and yet touches each one. It reaches out to you. Suppose God had offered salvation only to the rich? Suppose God had only offered salvation to the healthy or educated, but God calls all people, individually to trust him.
What if God’s offer were not based on faith alone”
Picture men working, trying, dying. Picture men earning, failing. Consider the dying thief.. And the offer to dying men.
But John 3:16 is true
You can be saved by faith in Christ
What a message to take to the world.
