John 3:16  "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

The Greatest

For God   -  The Greatest Sovereign

So Loved  -  The Greatest Degree of Intimacy

The World  -  The Greatest Creation

That He Gave  -  The Greatest Display of Generosity

His Only Son  -  The Greatest Gift

That Whoever believes in Him  -  The Greatest Invitation

Shall Not Perish-  The Greatest Promise

But Have Everlasting Life  -  The Greatest Hope


"Oh, Love of God, how rich and pure!

How measureless and strong!

It shall forevermore endure --

The saints' and angels' song."

By Ben Kellert

We are where we are today because of the Love of God!

We have what we have today because of the Love of God!


The Love of God - Hymn Lyrics:

The love of God is greater far
than tongue or pen can ever tell;
it goes beyond the highest star,
and reaches to the lowest hell.
The wand'ring child is reconciled
by God's beloved Son.
The aching soul again made whole,
and priceless pardon won.

O love of God, how rich and pure!
How measureless and strong!
It shall forevermore endure—
the saints’ and angels’ song.

2 When ancient time shall pass away,
and human thrones and kingdoms fall;
when those who here refuse to pray
on rocks and hills and mountains call;
God’s love so sure, shall still endure,
all measureless and strong;
grace will resound the whole earth round—
the saints’ and angels’ song. [Refrain]

3 Could we with ink the ocean fill,
and were the skies of parchment made;
were ev’ry stalk on earth a quill,
and ev’ryone 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. [Refrain]

Lavish - He wants to Lavish His love on us!

  • Lavish: to bestow something in generous or extravagant quantities on.
  • Not a small amount but a pay-loader bucket-full!  Huge!
  • Unfathomable...incomprehendible 

"For God so Loved the world..." 

  • WE have been put here to make Jesus irresistibly attractive to those we come in contact with.
