Encouraging people on their journey with Christ

John 3:16 and God - Church of Christ Articles

Have you ever thought of what God desires for you are and what He thinks of you? In Psalms 139 David reveals that God loves you more than any parent could. In addition, the Lord watches over you like you were the only person He ever created. Think how much time the Lord put into your creation and how much He thinks about you as you read what David tells the Lord.

 Psalm 139:13 You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb. 14 Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it. 15 You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion, as I was woven together in the dark of the womb. 16 You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed. 17 How precious are your thoughts about me, O God. They cannot be numbered! 18 I can’t even count them; they outnumber the grains of sand! And when I wake up, you are still with me! [1]

God’s Desire

God has created you and has a plan for your life in this lifetime and eternity. Life is like a test, but God walks with us during this test. The Lord’s desire for you is to believe in Him as your Savior so you can be transformed in this lifetime and go to heaven when you die. Heaven is forever. Can you imagine spending eternity in heaven with Jesus?

Jesus explained why He came to Nicodemus and these words still apply to us. The Gospel of John tells us of the price the Lord paid so you could be called to faith and go to heaven. John 3:16 “For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.[2]

More Than We can Imagine

We can’t imagine the suffering Jesus endured when all of our sins were poured out upon Him as He was nailed to the cross. Jesus was willing to pay that price so your sins could be forgiven. God’s desire is we repent of our sins and turn to Him as our Savior. God’s desire is for you to spend eternity in heaven in the most wonderful place that we can’t even imagine.

The Apostle Paul gives a glimpse of heaven in 1 Cor. 2:9That is what the Scriptures mean when they say, “No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him.[3]
