16 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 NKJV

What a wonderful verse! The entire message of the Bible told in a single passage. For God so loved us!
That’s right, he loved US. We so often have a problem making this personal. We can easily apply it to the world, but forget about his love for us… For you! Can you imagine that if Christ had only one person that would receive salvation for his sacrifice, that he would still do it? He would. If you or I were the only reason, he would still do it. He loves us that much.

God looked through the passages of time and knew you. He knows everything about us, all of our failures, our frailties, our sins, and he still loves us with all of his magnificent being, He would, and did give it all for us, for you. As Christ hung on the cross, he was thinking of you. Paying your debt so he could be with you for eternity. Does this make a difference in our attitude towards the cross? Does it demand something in return? He just wants our love. He knows that love will transform us. He knows that love will change us. He knows that love will bring us home.

Think about it, For God so loved you, he gave all that he had! What will we give in return?
