TEXT John 3.16 NKJ “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.”
  • GOD = LOVE
1 John 4.18,19 ESV “There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love. We love because he first loved us.”
Truly He taught us to love one another
His law is love and His gospel is peace
Chains shall He break for the slave is our brother
And in His name, all oppression shall cease – O Holy Night by John S. Dwight
  • GOD’S LOVE = GIVING
1 Corinthians 13.13 ESV “So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.”
1 John 3.11 ESV “For this is the message that you have heard from the beginning, that we should love one another.”
1 John 4.18 ESV “Thereis no fear in love, but perfect love casts our fear. For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love.
  • GOD’S LOVE = LIFE
The Love of God – Meir Ben Isaac Nehorai
Could we with ink the ocean fill; And were the skies of parchment made
Were ever stalk on earth a quill; And every man a scribe by trade
To write the love of God above; Would drain the ocean dry
Nor could the scroll contain the whole; Though stretched from sky to sky
