Back to Basics

March 11, 2019

This is how much God loved the world: He gave his Son, his one and only Son.

Yikes!

And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life.

Ahhhh.

God didn’t go to all the trouble of sending his Son merely to point an accusing finger, telling the world how bad it was.

No?

He came to help, to put the world right again.

Aha!

Fabulous reminders. From John 3:16,17. In Gene Peterson’s version of The Bible. Called The Message.

You and I can wander off into the weeds now and then. Jesus calls us back to basics —

This is how much God loved the world: He gave his Son, his one and only Son. And this is why: so that no one need be destroyed; by believing in him, anyone can have a whole and lasting life. God didn’t go to all the trouble of sending his Son merely to point an accusing finger, telling the world how bad it was. He came to help, to put the world right again.

— And I’m sure glad, aren’t you?
