GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD, THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON, THAT WHOEVER BELIEVES IN HIM SHOULD NOT PERISH BUT HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE.
God is our Maker, He has made the world and all the things in it, and so He made you! God is Holy, He hates all the bad things we do and calls them "sin", He is Just and must punish us for our sins unless we have them taken away.
SO LOVED THE WORLD
There are over 6 billion people in the world and yet the startling fact is that God loves them all! He loves you. You have sinned against Him yet He still loves you and wants you to be happy in Heaven with Him forever!
God loved you so much...
THAT HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON
God's only begotten Son, the Lord Jesus Christ was with Him and loved by Him forever in Heaven. Yet God gave Him to be born in Bethlehem, to live a wonderful life but most importantly to die on a cross for you.
The Bible says "God demostrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us" (Romans 5 v 8).
The Lord Jesus had no sins of His own, He could not sin, but He willingly endured the punishment for sin, so that you might go free.
"Christ died for our sins, ... and ... rose again the third day, according to the Scriptures" (1 Corinthians 15 v 3-4)
God was satisfied with His Son's death and so He raised Him from the dead. He is now in Heaven at God's right hand, alive forevermore!
God did all this so...
THAT WHOEVER BELIEVES IN HIM SHOULD NOT PERISH BUT HAVE EVERLASTING LIFE
God doesn't want you to perish forever for your sins, so He has made a way of escape.
If you trust in the Lord Jesus Christ you will have everlasting life and will go to heaven when you die.
Trust Him today and be sure of being in Heaven.
