“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life.” John 3:16
The verse above is one of the most famous verses from the Bible. It talks about God’s love, Jesus, faith, hell and heaven. God wants fellowship and a relationship with every human being. That is why He created man. This is the meaning of life, to know God.
But, sin entered the world and the fellowship between God and man was broken. The solution is that God in His love gave His Son to us humans. Jesus took our penalty of sin on the cross, arose on the third day and now wants to reconcile every human being to God. You get reconciled to God when you put your faith and trust in Jesus. Then Jesus saves / rescues, from the consequences of sin.
Only through Jesus can one be saved from perishing. To perish means that one’s soul goes to hell after death. God does not want any man to perish. God wants to give you eternal life, which means fellowship with God, part of the life that comes from Him and that your soul goes to heaven when you die.
Jesus has made everything clear for every human being through His death and resurrection.
“For, “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.”” Rom. 10:13
Receive, by putting your faith in Jesus today and ask Him to reconcile you to God.
God bless you.
