How Wide God's Love

Wednesday, September 19th, 2018

John 3:16

“For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son...”

Max's Message:

As boldly as the center beam of the cross proclaims God's holiness, the crossbeam declares his love. And, oh, how wide his love reaches. Aren't you glad the verse does not read: "For God so loved the rich..."? " Or, "For God so loved the famous...?" Or, "For God so loved the thin...?" It doesn't. Nor does it state, "For God so loved the Europeans or Africans...." "The sober or successful...." "the young or the old....." No, when we read John 3:16, we simply (and happily) read, "For God so loved the world." How wide is God's love? Wide enough for the whole world.
