" The Design of God's Love"

John 3:11-16



For the next four Sundays I want us to focus on the words of Jesus to Nicodemus in John 3:16.  I do not know of a better place in Scripture to celebrate Christ and His resurrection than here.   

I am dividing it into four parts that make a natural presentation: The Four D's of the Gospel.  

1.      The first "D." The verse talks about the danger that we are in without Christ—" . . . that we might not perish." All human beings are in danger of perishing, which is not merely dying, but is the opposite of eternal life. Eternal perishing.

 2.      The second "D." The verse talks about the design of God to rescue us from perishing. "For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son." It's the love of God giving his Son in incarnation and death that rescues us from perishing.

3.      The third "D." The verse talks about the duty that we must fulfill if we are going to be a part of the love of God in rescuing sinners from perishing. The duty is faith, or believing in the Son that God sends. " . . . that whoever believes on him might not perish."

4.      Finally, the fourth "D." The verse talks about the destiny of those who believe, eternal life. " . . . that whoever believes on him might not perish, but have eternal life."


    Join us this Sunday on our Journey Through the Gospel According to John.
