day 11


John 3:16-17 (NASB)
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but so that the world might be saved through Him.

John 3:16. If you grew up in church, you likely know this verse by heart. It may sound cliche or basic after so many years of believing. To someone who’s never heard the Gospel before, to someone who can’t imagine a father sacrificing everything for her, to someone who heaps shame and condemnation on himself every single day, this verse sounds radical. It sounds life-altering. It sounds healing.

Maybe even as a follower of Jesus, you’ve forgotten what your Father’s love is like. You’ve forgotten that you’re free from sin and shame. You’ve forgotten how much grace God pours on you every single day. 

We all need the Gospel, no matter how long we’ve known Jesus. We need fresh eyes to see this wondrous gift for what it is and to live out the truth of it in our lives. We need renewed conviction to share this gift with others.

Observations from the Text:

  • God loves us abundantly and sacrificially (v. 16)

  • God wants us to live with Him forever (v. 16)

  • God didn’t send Jesus to condemn us (v. 17)

  • God sent his only son to rescue the world (v. 17)

Bearer of my cross, I’m ready to experience freedom; I’m not defined by sin or shame, but only by Your love! May I be in total awe today of Your loving, faithful, and kind goodness towards me. Help me clearly see that everything about my life, every good and perfect gift comes from You, and You alone.
