Day 7 - The Greatest Love | February Devotional in the Gospel of John

Friday, February 07, 2020 Bryan Hudson 1 Comments

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 everlasting life. 17 For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.

It is interesting that this is one verse in the Bible everybody seems to know. It could be the most quoted verse in the Bible. We’ve see the reference “John 3:16” in places from billboards to football stadiums. 

All of this seems fitting since this is one of the most important messages to humanity with a clear focus on the most important Person in human history. These two brief verses contain a wealth of encouragement and life-changing  perspectives.

1. Love is defined as giving. God so loved us that He gave his only son.

2. Jesus did not come for a select few, he came for “whomever” will believe on him.

3. Faith in Christ changes our eternal condition from perishing to living eternally.

4. Jesus is not in the business of condemning. He’s in the business of saving.

5. The world is a lost place. Jesus came to bring people in the world into a new life.

Reflection Question: You've read John 3:16-17. What does it mean to your life?

  1. In my life this truth shows me that I am so valuable that God would sacrifice his only son for me. It is a humbling thought that Jesus would sacrifice himself for me , even when I know the part of me that is the least lovable. God wanted a relationship with me so much that He moved the barrier of sin so that I could come to Him. (That's love) No Greater Love
