For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.
God so loved the world—He loves us so much—that He sent Jesus to live and die and be raised again from the dead to save us from our sins, to give us eternal life. John 3:16 may be the most well-known verse in the Bible because it summarizes the whole Bible in a few words. Everything from Genesis to Revelation is about God’s love for us and His plan for us to live with Him eternally in the new Heaven and the new earth. That plan required Jesus to pay the price for our sins—all so we don’t perish, all so we have eternal life.
Thank You, Jesus, for giving Your life in ransom for mine. Thank You, Father, for loving me so much that You gave Your Son so I could have eternal life. Thank You, Holy Spirit, that You live within me and guide me in this temporal life until I come to that eternal life. In the name of Jesus. Amen.
