For God So…Agape

“For God so loved the world that He gave His one & only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.”

– John 3:16 & 17

This is one of the most popular, well known verses… Followed by one that no one ever really pays attention to. But, 17 is just as important as 16. It reminds us why He came in the first place: to save us. To redeem us back to Himself.

To redeem our part of the story.

It is this Agape – Love that moved God to give of Himself to save us.

And, as the beloved, we are the Redeemed.

All we have to do is call on Him… Confess & Believe.

I’m so glad its as simple as that.

“Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved”
– Joel 2:32
