God So Loved the World
Read: John 3:16-17 (below)
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.” – John 3:16-17
Discuss: After Jesus died on the cross he rose from the dead and conquered death! What time of year do we celebrate Jesus’ victory over death? Through the season of Advent leading up to Christmas we remember our need for a rescuer. And we celebrate the birth of our Savior! All of the promises made throughout the bible have been fulfilled by Jesus. The bible says that if we believe we need to be saved (that we are sinners) and believe that Jesus died to save us, we will have eternal life. Do you believe that you need to be rescued? Do you believe that Jesus is your rescuer?
