God’s Love (4)

Today’s Bible Reading is probably very familiar to you. Many people like to memorize verse 16: “Yes, God loved the world so much that he gave his only son. God gave his Son so that every person that believes in him would not be lost, but have life forever.” This verse clearly tells us how much God loves us. He loves us so much that He sent His Son, Jesus, to die on the cross.
I have two daughters and one son. I love my children very much. I cannot imagine giving one of my children to be sacrificed! My children are not perfect, but Jesus was. God gave His sinless Son to die for sinners. Why? Because He loves us. He loves us so much that He wants us to live forever with Him. But the only way we can live forever with God is to accept Jesus as our Savior. Jesus accepted the punishment for our sins. That is true love!
I hope that you love God, too. You can show your love to God by obeying and serving Him. Read God’s Word, the Bible, and become close to Him. Find ways to serve other people. Share the news about God’s love with people you meet.
