For God so Loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have ETERNAL life.
Why? For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through Him might be saved.
Y’all, The Word had a choice – YOU!
Your word is from you, it mirrors your heart – no? Out of the heart speaketh the mouth.
This answers why Christ was sent as Man. We should consider the options/possibilities…. God’s Word Which Created ALL was sent to renew Creation for you!
John 3:16 is easily the most well known, and probably the most well loved, verse in all the Bible. It is in some ways a summary of the whole of Scripture, and certainly a summary of the Gospel. Here we see God’s great love for a fallen world, such that he gave his only Son to die on Calvary’s cross. And the purpose is stated to be so that anyone who believes in Jesus would not perish but have eternal life. John 3:17 then begins by denying that God sent his Son to condemn the world, but asserts it was in fact to save it. Many of the Jews thought that Messiah would come to bless Israel but to judge the Gentile world. But here we see Jesus die to save Jew and Gentile alike.
And we pray:
Lord, we know that You do not fail in any of Your purposes. Your purpose was to save an elect people from all nations, Jew and Gentile alike. Your purpose was to save “whosoever believes” in Jesus. And everyone who has ever come to Jesus in true repentance and faith has been saved. We praise You for Your kindness shown to us in Christ Jesus and we strive to make your Gospel known to all. Amen.
