The great love of God for the world

There are those verses in the Bible that have their own light, in the sense that you do not have to go through the whole Bible to understand them, because, certainly there are many verses that are difficult to understand and can not be interpreted by themselves, but there are that study the context to be faithful to what the author wanted to say.

There is a verse in the Bible that seems to be among the most cited of our century, which is John 3:16, also other texts, like Philippians 4:13, Psalm 23, Psalm 91, among others, seem to be the most mentioned in our times. But it is also very true that we often interpret them superfluously, and we do not give them the true meaning that the author gave them at that time. But with John 3:16 this does not happen, almost everyone understands what the verse means, although perhaps there are some other things that escape to us.

In John 3:16 all the love of God for humanity is summarized, because in His short words He gives us a great detail of the love that the Father felt for the world.

This great verse says:

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

The first thing is that God loved the world, demonstrating a love that brokes all barriers in humanity. Never another person felt so much love for the human race, instead, God demonstrated his love for humanity by giving or delivering the most valuable thing he could offer: “His only Son”. We were guilty of great sins, we had disobeyed the divine law and that communion we had with God was broken. But God, He loved us so much that He did not leave things like that, but that He provided a perfect sacrifice to satisfy His justice.

The text does not say that God sold or that He gave us something that we deserved, it is just the opposite, God gave us something that we did not deserve in the least, and He took such great care that He gave us the most valuable. Is not this amazing? God in His eternal grace blessed us with His greatest blessing: “He gave us His only son”.

And God gave us His Son and everyone who believes in Him will be saved. There is no doubt about this, through the death of Christ on the cross, God gave us the gift of eternal life and that makes us sure in that promise. God is not like certain men who make promises that they can never fulfill. His Word is safe and this gives us a peace that surpasses all understanding.

In the last place, God has given us eternal life so that we do not lose ourselves in hell, so that we do not spend eternity of eternities suffering in hell. The Father’s love for humanity is the greatest love. It simply has nothing to compare with. Many people have wanted to compare the love of a mother with that of God, but no, the love of God is incomparable and unequaled.

    The great love of God for the world
    ======================
    No one in this world that accepts the existence of God can utter words of reproach to God about his interest for the man and the woman whom he created in the beginning. He certainly takes care of their descendents and all his creation.

    Regardless of whether we acknowledge that God, in his wisdom, already knew that men would rebel against Him, he created Adam and Eve because so it pleased Him for his Glory; and later He had to punish them for his justice.

    The Bible says to us that God is absolutely Holy and pure, and that he loves all his creation, which, He saw, was good. And He loves the “head” of his creation: man; and also the woman who was created from that man.
    Now, when the Bible says that God loved the World, it means He loved mankind; and he demonstrated that in an inconceivable way for us, as the following verse indicates:
    “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son,” to save those who believe in Him.
    (John 3:16)

    That God loves the human race is clear, and there is no doubt about it. The Scriptures give us a true testimony of God’s works in his creation: so men do not lack food, water or other necessary things to live—while, of course, men and women had to manage all the gifts of God with wisdom. He gave them his Law also, for them to live in a good, happy way on the earth.

    But the wickedness of men and women ruined God’s work and all his creation; and God had to punish them. But He also provided a way of salvation, so that they would turn from their bad works and became holy people, as God is.

    God sent his servants to warn people they had offended against Him, since all sinned against God’s Law. But few people believed them, and it was written that all who sin would die; which means they would be separate from God eternally, and, with body and soul, they would be cast into a place of punishment—Hell.
    This is a terrible thing but it is true, as Jesus Christ himself tells us.

    “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son,
    that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16)

    God does no want the death of men and women; but rather He wants them to repent of their bad works and their incredulity. Yes, God wants sinners to receive His Son Jesus Christ, so that—along with His Son—they may get life and may live in His presence, there in Heaven, where Jesus is
