For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
This scripture is considered the Golden Text of the Bible in that it depicts the heart of God and the depths of His love for humanity. He gave the very best that He had to reconcile man back to Himself.
The question now becomes, why was this necessary? It was necessary because all humanity had sinned and come short of God's glory and there were none found righteous. What God did was pronounced the whole world guilty before Him. God's love would not allow Him to leave man in lost in sin; therefore, He sent His only begotten Son to die for the sins of the world. All who believe in Jesus Christ shall be saved and spend eternity in the presence of God.
There is no greater love than a man who would give his life for another so that the forgiven can and will have everlasting life; God's agape love. God's love is unmatchless.
What we know about God is that His promises are sure and have been and will be kept. God promised a Savior and forty-two generations later Jesus came and redeemed man back to God the Father. Christ took the believer's sins and gave us His righteousness; quite an exchange.
It is in Christ that we as believers live because He lives.
