John 3:16

God loved, God gave, I believe, and I have everlasting life. Everlasting life is far more than life throughout eternity. It is far more than eternal existence. It is the very life of God communicated to the soul, in order that we may enjoy fellowship with him. “This is life eternal, that they might know thee, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom thou hast sent.”

God loved the world, so this includes all mankind. God does not love man’s sins or the wicked world system. He loves people and is not willing that any should perish. Our Lord Jesus is spoken of five times as “the only begotten” in the New Testament (twice in John 1, twice in John 3, and once in 1 John 4:9). God so loved the world that he gave his “unique Son” The Lord Jesus is the Son of God in a sense that no one else can ever be; The Son of God - His eternal Son - His unique Son. 

Jesus I will trust you,

Trust thee with my soul.

Guilty, foul and helpless,

Thou canst make me whole.


There is none in heaven,

Or on earth like thee.

Thou hast died for sinners;

Therefore love for me.
