John 3:16 – God Loves You

(This post is an evangelistic post. In order to get this before as many people as possible, if you would, please re-post this to your Facebook page. Thanks.)
John 3:16
It’s one of the best-known verses in the Bible.
John 3:16 is the gospel in one sentence. It speaks of God’s love for us.
“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son; that whosoever believes in Him, would not perish, but would have everlasting life.”
Think about that verse… but put your name in it…to illustrate, I will use my name.
“For God so loved Gregg Potts.that He gave His only begotten Son; that if Gregg Potts, believes in Jesus, Gregg Potts would not perish, but would have everlasting life.”
God loved this world .. God loved me… so much, that He sent His only Son. Think about that. I love my children and I’m sure you love yours. I’m being honest here… I wouldn’t sacrifice my Son or my kids so that others could be saved. But God sacrificed Jesus so I could be saved.
That demonstrates God’s love. He gave His only Son. And, then, think about how it hurts God when the people He has sent His Son to save, reject His Son. Yet, the Bible says, “He came into His won and His own received Him not” (John 1:11).
Think about this… man has a sin problem. Man cannot solve his problem. God knows this and sends His only Son to solve man’s problem. Man rejects Jesus. Jesus could have said, “God, bring Me back to heaven…I’m not dying for these people.. they have rejected Me.” Instead, they put Jesus on the cross and Jesus said, “Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do.”
Jesus died for us. He paid the price for our sin. He loves us.
Jesus Christ is the greatest love gift the world has ever known. He will come into your heart today, if you will repent of your sins and ask Jesus in. Accept God’s free love gift today.
Now, you may say, “But you don’t know what I’ve done. You don’t how bad I’ve been… You don’t know the sins I’ve committed.” I don’t and I don’t need to. It doesn’t matter what you have done. Jesus loves you.
Are you divorced? Jesus loves you.
Are you addicted to drugs or alcohol? Jesus loves you.
Have  you gone bankrupt? Jesus loves you.
Are you gay or lesbian? Jesus loves you.
Are you living with someone of the opposite sex and you aren’t married? Jesus
loves you.
Are you addicted to porn? Jesus loves you.
Are you a prostitute? Jesus loves you.
Have you committed a crime? Jesus loves you.
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him would not perish but would have everlasting life.” Accept god’s offer of love today.
