An Offer You Can Not Refuse
John 3:16 “For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. 17 God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through him.
18 “There is no judgment against anyone who believes in him. But anyone who does not believe in him has already been judged for not believing in God’s one and only Son. 19 And the judgment is based on this fact: God’s light came into the world, but people loved the darkness more than the light, for their actions were evil. 20 All who do evil hate the light and refuse to go near it for fear their sins will be exposed. 21 But those who do what is right come to the light so others can see that they are doing what God wants.”
How much did God love you? So much that he offered his son as the sacrifice for your sin.
Why did he do it? So that you could live for eternity with him.
Don’t get the wrong idea, Jesus didn’t come to judge the world, he actually came to save you from the coming judgment.
How can you pass up on an offer like that?
I will live for God because he died for me.
Help me to live each day knowing that ultimately I will spend eternity with you and all the trials of this world will be nothing compared to eternity with my Savior. Thank you for your love and for giving me a way out of the coming judgment.
