The Love of Christ

John 3:16 says 'For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life'.

He loved the world of men, not the world of trees or houses or inanimate objects. Based on His love for us, He sent His Son to die for the world. While we were yet sinners the Bible says Christ died for us. God is love and love is God. His love was and is not based on our actions or inactions.

Therefore, there is nothing in this world that He can’t do for us. All He’s asking is for us to love Him and open up our hearts to receive Him. If as an individual you were the only one on earth, He would have still sent His Son to die on the cross. On that cross, the Bible says when the spear was thrust into His side blood and water gushed out showing that His heart had ruptured. Before He died, He shouted out ‘My God My God why hast thou forsaken me’. This was because God turned His back on Him. God does not behold iniquity. All the sins of the world was laid on Jesus.

He did it all for you and me because of His love
