“For God loved the world in this way: He gave his one and only Son so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.” – John 3:16
Hello everyone! This week I’m super excited to talk with you all about how God loves us and always keeps His promises to us. Before we do that, I want you to pair up and answer these two questions; then, I’ll ask what you came up with in your group.
- If you could live forever, what would you do?
- How do you know that someone loves You?
Sometimes we use the word “love” for everything from pizza to our parents. That can make the definition of love confusing. Thankfully, God shows us in His Word the true meaning of His love for us.
Did you know that no matter what you did today, God couldn’t love you more or less than He does right now? Let that sink in. No matter if you did something kind of bad or really good, God will still love you! God will always love you, no matter what!
John 3:16 tells us that God loved us so much that He gave up His Son so that we could be with God in Heaven one day. I don’t know about you, but that sure does sound like love.
What do you think Heaven will be like?
That’s all great! Heaven is a great place where we get to be with God forever. Sometimes it’s hard to understand that amount of love or even believe it. It seems too good to be true, right?
When we think about something being too good to be true, it’s probably because we have been disappointed or let down before, which can make us sad. For example, someone might promise that you would get to play in a game, and then you didn’t, so they ended up breaking the promise they made.
That happens because we live in a world that has sin in it. Even the nicest of people are not perfect and make mistakes. But that’s the thing about God; He is perfect. We CAN trust that when God makes us a promise, it will always happen!
How does it make you feel that God loves you no matter what?
“Heavenly Father, You are a promise keeper. Your love is true and will never stop. Thank You for sending Your Son to die on the cross so that one day we can be with You in Heaven. I pray that as we go throughout our week, we’ll see how much You love us. Amen.”
