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. r God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
Insights: Tuesday night Brother Joe preached on The Greatest Possible Decision found in John 3:16-17.
For God – The Greatest Possible Being
So Loved – The Greatest Possible Emotion
The World – The Greatest Possible Number of People
That He Gave – The Greatest Possible Blessing
His Only Begotten Son – The Greatest Possible Gift
That Whosoever Believeth In Him – The Greatest Possible Solution
Should Not Perish – The Worst Possible Death
But Have Everlasting Life – The Greatest Possible Time
Verse 17 tells us that verse 16 is the true heart of God. The Lord God did not desire for a single soul to die and go to eternal damnation in the lake of fire separated from His love. Rather His love was so great that He sent His only Son to die in your place for your sins. It is from this truth that we are offered The Greatest Possible Decision.
- Will you receive Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior and be saved or will you reject Him and spend eternity in torment and pain?
- What is your decision, because it is the greatest decision you will ever make?
Prayer: Father, thank You that You did give Your Son, Jesus, to the world. Lord, may John 3:16 and its beautiful message spread all across this world. Be brought glory Lord God as lives are changed by this simple decision to accept Your gift of grace. Fill me full of Your Spirit and give me the courage to share Your love unashamedly. Amen.
