For God so loved the world that He
gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but
have everlasting life (John 3:16)

John 3:16 is
probably the most popular verse in the Bible, but many haven’t understood the
power of that little powerful verse. What world did God love? Was it the hills
and the mountains? Was it the vegetations and the rivers? It was none of these.
He loved the world of human beings, as sinful and wicked as they were! Doesn’t
it amaze you that even when Adam sinned back in the garden, it was still God
who came looking for him (Genesis 3). Adam was hiding from God, because he had
sinned, yet God still covered his nakedness with animal skin, showing that he loved

The Bible
says “Herein is love, not that we loved
God, but that He loved us, and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our
sins” (
1 John 4:10). So, clearly God demonstrated His great and boundless
love for us, while we were yet in sin. You may be reading this today and
perhaps you’re not born again and you’re wondering, “Can God possibly love
someone like me?” Emphatically yes! No matter what kind of life you may have
lived, He wants you today!

Now that you
know how much God loved the world of sinners, think about how much more He
loves those who are born of Him! The Bible says “if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of His
Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by His life”
5:10). If He loved the world of wicked men, He loves His kids even more.

If you’re
born again, you have no business with poverty, sickness and failure. God has
given us HIS OWN LIFE, and
everything that belongs to Him (Romans 8:17). He did all this because it’s been
poured out abundantly for you.


Dear Heavenly Father, I thank You for
lavishing Your love on me. I am so glad that you sent Your Son Jesus Christ to
die for me, and I am even more glad to be called Your Son today! Help me, I
pray to comprehend the length, breadth and height of that love, in Jesus Christ
Name! Amen!

May Our God The
Almighty prosper Nigeria and Israel and defend us from all our enemies in Jesus
Christ Name, Amen!
