Project Love...Love Notes

I got a little behind on my podcasts and then discovered that the microphone that I use doesn't work very well, so I will share Project Love/PROject Love info via blogposts for a while.  

The most recent scripture I focused on was John 3:16:

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

This scripture is probably the most quoted bible verse of all time. For some people, it is the summation of the gospel in just a sentence. For me, in the last few weeks that I have been contemplating this particular scripture, it has that meaning and more during this season of my life. For me, God didn't just love....He so loved. Loved more than anybody could or would.

I could say that He simply loved me by filling my lungs with air, but even more than just having life, He wanted me to have life beyond this earthly existence. He so loves me. He so loves me that He doesn't want me to perish. He doesn't want me to rot away for eternity, but to have life. Vibrant life that will last forever. And because of that great love, He gives His Son, who is perfect, holy, faithful and true, that if we believe (trust in all that His is and what He has done on the cross) we will have eternal life. When I trust upon Jesus, believe His words, and follow Him, I also find that things in my life stop rotting and dying....they begin to flourish as hope grows and truth shines a light into the darkest parts of my mind. He illuminates me with His great love and I start to change. I get the blessing of change, hope, and eternity because God so loved me that He withheld nothing back for my salvation....He gave it all in and through Jesus.

My next scripture of focus will be 1 Corinthians 16:14 Let all that you do be done in love.
