"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life." - John 3:16

"Behold what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called the children of God! Therefore the world does not know us, because it did not know Him." - 1 John 3:1

John 3:16 is perhaps one of the most quoted scriptures from the Bible. But have you ever thought about the depth of God's love that this verse reveals to us? God's love is so profound that He loves each one of us as if we are the only one living. His love is personal and He displayed it by taking the form of flesh. An infinite God taking the form of a human and enduring the suffering of the cross. We as human beings cannot understand the full depth of God's love because we have a finite mind. The Father bestowed on us His love to save us and bring us home with Him. Heaven will one day reveal the manner of love and yet it will only be a glimpse.
Love the Lord your God with all your heart, mind, soul and strength. No wonder why God gave this as His greatest commandment to us, because He has loved us likewise.
Praise the Lord!
