This week’s memory verse from Called and Created’s Bible Reading and Memorization Plan is John 3:16. It says that God loved the world so much that He sent His only Son, so that if we will believe in Him, we will not perish, but have eternal life!
God sent His Son to save us. At Christmas, this is what we celebrate. Why did He send Jesus to be our Savior? Because He loves us! He cared about us so much He didn’t want us to experience the punishment our sins deserved, so He sent Jesus to take our sins, and the punishment for them, upon Himself. He wouldn’t have done this if He didn’t love us more than we can imagine!
If we believe in Jesus, we will have eternal life. What is eternal life? Simply put, to know God (John 17:3)! God wants us to have a relationship with Him that begins now, and will last forever!
God sent His Son to save you because He loves you. He wants to give you eternal life, if you will put your faith in Jesus, and what He has done for you!
