There are many religions in the world today. Some people worship the one true God. Other people worship other gods or a person or things in nature like trees, animals or the sun. Many of these religions have confusing beliefs and rules. Christianity is called a religion. But it is much more than that. Christianity is a personal relationship with God and Jesus.
In our Bible Reading today, a Jewish man named Nicodemus asked Jesus some questions. Nicodemus was curious about Jesus’ teaching. Jesus explained to him about entering God’s kingdom. In verse 16 Jesus gave Nicodemus the foundation of Christianity: “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.”
Christianity is very different from other religions. Christianity has a God who loves all people. Christianity has a Savior, Jesus, who died and rose from the dead. That’s not confusing ? that’s wonderful! Be sure to thank God today for His plan for your life.
