Believing the unbelievable

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life. Jn. 3:16

Because it is so familiar, we can forget that Jn. 3:16 is such a radical idea. This was a rescue mission because perishing people don’t have the resources or strength to save themselves. This was an adoption because His motivation was to adopt us, not just to keep a bunch of broken people from perishing. Jesus made it clear that the Father’s intended for us to experience His love for us for all eternity.

Lord, I believe in Your unbelievable love for me.
