JESUS THE CENTER OF IT ALL, EVEN THE LOVE OF GOD:

John 3:16- 16For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

There are 25 words in our text verse;

This verse starts with God and ends with Life, and right in the center of the verse is the word Son; the truth of this verse is centered around the Son.

John 3:16- 16For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

The words or thought centers majestically around the Lord Jesus Christ.

This Illustrates the position God has given to his Son, He is the Center of it all...

It has been said that this is one of the greatest verses in the entire Bible. It contains so much that it is virtually inexhaustible, for example we can see in this verse the Revelation or the unveiling of the Heart of God, it says, "For God so LOVED the world." And we should be truly grateful that He is a God of Love, and my little finite mind could not even begin to describe the Love that God has for every person on the planet.

But let me be mindful to add that according to Heb.12: 29For our God is a consuming fire and also in Heb.10: 31It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.

But Gods plan, & Gods Love evolve around His Only Begotten Son; Why is that?

col.1:15Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: 16For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: 17And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. 18And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence.

And God will never take His Love from us; who are His children

Rom. 8:35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 36As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. 37Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. 38For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, 39Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

When God removes His true church from the earth and the [grace] dispensation has run its course, then instead of experiencing Gods marvelous grace, the earth dwellers that are left here will expererance Gods wrath, not His love.

But back on the thought of His love, in 1 John 3:1 " Behold, what manner of Love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God."

He has given to you and I this same kind of Love, Agape Love, a love with no strings attached, notice the word Manner,
