For our encouragement from God’s Word today please read John 3:14-17.
In John 3:14-17 the Apostle John looks back to a time during the Wilderness Wanderings when the Jewish people were facing massive death in the desert. God told Moses to lift up a serpent on a cross. Everyone who looked upon it would be healed & escape death. That miracle in the Wilderness became an illustration of the Gospel to people dying in Sin. Verse 16 is perhaps the most loved & quoted verse in the Bible – “For God so Loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever Believes in Him should not perish, but have Everlasting Life!” That my friends is the Gospel in a nutshell.
Today, let’s thank God for the Glorious Gospel! Although we don’t deserve Salvation we can receive it through Jesus Christ’s sacrificial death on the Cross. What Love! what Mercy! What Grace! Hallelujah – What a Savior! Let’s live this day for His Honor & Glory!
APPLICATION: How has God spoken to you through His Word today? How will you apply these truths to your life?
I hope this devotional has blessed your life. If you have a special prayer request please call (304) 776-1619.
Have a “Gospel Filled” day!
