The immeasurable love of God

“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.” – John 3:16

God loves each of us so much that HE was willing to give His Son as a sacrifice to pay the penalty of all of our sins. They are paid for entirely, all you have to do is believe in Jesus for your salvation and you will be saved. Like the Jewish people in the wilderness who were bitten by venomous snakes for their disobedience and hard hearts, all they had to do to live was to look at the bronze serpent that Moses put on the pole in the camp. Just look at it and you will live. If they didn’t, they would die. Their “looking” at it was with expectancy and they were expecting God to heal them from the snake bites. We have to expect salvation through our belief in Jesus for our salvation.

The gospel of Jesus Christ is just that simple but many people don’t want to believe that it can be that simple. There must be something that they can do or must do in order to gain their salvation! That is the problem today, people expect that they have to help Jesus save their souls but that is not what is required. Those people in the wilderness couldn’t heal themselves. All they could do was believe what Moses told them about looking at the serpent on the pole and they would be healed. Jesus did all the work that was needed to bring salvation to us and it is up to us and our faith to believe in His work of atonement for our sins and we shall be saved.

There is nothing magical about the verse that nearly everyone knows but the belief in Jesus comes to us when God touches our hearts and we realize that we truly need Jesus as our Savior. I pray that everyone who reads this will seek Jesus Christ as their Savior because the time of God’s grace is coming to an end and the world will soon be in turmoil during the Tribulation. Salvation is possible during this time but it will be harder to achieve and live out during this period. God wants as many as will believe to come to salvation and I pray that you will.
