“Yes, God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not be lost but may have eternal life.” (Jh. 3: 16)
God took the initiative because he is Love. Love must be shared.
Our response to God’s love initiative is Faith. Faith in Jesus Christ. This means three things:
- Accept Jesus in our hearts – welcome him;
- Trust in Jesus because he is God-made-man;
- Obey him wholeheartedly.
Result? Union with God in everlasting happiness.
