WORD OF THE DAY

πŸ“– John 3:16-17
[16] “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. [17] For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him.

πŸ“– Juan 3:16-17
Kay gihigugma gayod sa Dios ang kalibotan, mao nga gihatag niya ang iyang bugtong Anak, aron nga si bisan kinsa nga motuo kaniya dili malaglag kondili makaangkon hinuon ug kinabuhi nga walay kataposan. Kay ang Dios wala magpadala sa iyang Anak dinhi sa kalibotan aron hukman sa silot ang katawhan, kondili aron sa pagluwas sa mga tawo.

✝️ BIBLICAL INSIGHTS:
☝️Jn. 3:16 β€” For God so loved the world. The Son’s mission is bound up in the supreme love of God for the evil, sinful β€œworld” of humanity (cf. Jn 6:32, 51; Jn 12:47; Mt 5:44, 45) that is in rebellion against Him. The word β€œso” emphasizes the intensity or greatness of His love. The Father gave His unique and beloved Son to die on behalf of sinful men.… ETERNAL LIFE. This is the first of 10 references to β€œeternal life” in John’s gospel. The same Greek word is translated in some versions as β€œeverlasting life.” The two expressions appear in the NT nearly 50 times. Eternal life refers not only to eternal quantity but divine quality of life. It means literally β€œlife of the age to come” and refers therefore to resurrection and heavenly existence in perfect glory and holiness. This life for believers in the Lord Jesus is experienced before heaven is reached. This β€œeternal life” is in essence nothing less than participation in the eternal life of the Living Word, Jesus Christ. It is the life of God in every believer, yet not fully manifest until the resurrection (Ro 8:19–23; Php 3:20, 21). cf. 17:3; 1Jn 5:20… THE WORLD. The basic sense of this Greek word meaning β€œan ornament” is illustrated by the word β€œadornment” (1Pe 3:3). While the NT uses it a total of 185 times, John had a particular fondness for this term, using it 78 times in his gospel, 24 times in 1–3 John and 3 times in Revelation. John gives it several shades of meaning: 1) the physical created universe (Jn 1:9; cf. v. 3; Jn 21:24, 25); 2) humanity in general (Jn 3:16; Jn 6:33, 51; Jn 12:19); and 3) the invisible spiritual system of evil dominated by Satan and all that it offers in opposition to God, His Word, and His people (Jn 3:19; Jn 4:42; Jn 7:7; Jn 14:17, 22, 27, 30; Jn 15:18, 19; Jn 16:8, 20, 33; Jn 17:6, 9, 14; cf. 1Co 1:21; 2Pe 1:4; 1Jn 5:19). The latter concept is the significant new use that the term acquires in the NT and that predominates in John. Thus, in the majority of times that John uses the word, it has decidedly negative overtones.
☝️The forgiveness of sin, life everlasting, and the gates of heaven itself are flung open wide to whosoever will believe on the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation. There is no need for even one member of the human race to perish, for God’s invitation for salvation is open to ALL. The only condition to receive His free gift of salvation is to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ – and you will be saved.
☝️The eternal Son of God set aside His glory and was born into the fallen race of man, to die on Calvary for your sin and mine. If you were to travel to the furthest reaches of the universe, or go back to the beginning of time, there you’ll find love… for “God is love”…. the most precious thing in the universe is know the reality of His love – by FAITH.
☝️So many believers are living under condemnation. So many see God as an angry God with a big stick, watching our every movement with a frown on His face, waiting in anticipation for us to do something wrong so that He can punished us.
☝️If only believers would take what the Word of God says literally and believe what it says, so many would not be living their lives under condemnation but would be rejoicing in the Lord.
☝️It was out of love and not cruelty that God sent His only begotten Son into the world to die for the sin of the world, and once a sinner believes this simple truth, he is immediately saved and is NOT condemned. But how many believers continue to live the life under condemnation, simply because they do not read God’s Word or believe what they read.
☝️Let us read, mark, learn, and inwardly digest God’s Word – and then believe what He says.

πŸ™ Thank You, Lord, for sending Jesus to die for our sin. Thank You that His blood has paid the full penalty for my sin and that the power of sin in my life has been broken through Him. Thank You that Christ’s sacrifice reveals Your immense love for mankind – and for me. I just want to give You thanks and praise for this free gift of salvation that is open to whosoever will come. In Jesus’ name I pray, AMEN… Be blessed everyone.πŸ™β€οΈπŸŽšπŸ©ΈπŸ“–πŸ•Šβš“οΈπŸ”₯πŸ’―β˜οΈ

    When it comes to sharing their testimonies of faith, many Christians are sinfully silent. But a testimony is the most powerful evangelism tool you have. Share your story of faith with others and let them know how God has changed your life… and can change theirs too!
