HOW WILL THEY KNOW
“That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. 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. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.”
John 3:15-17 KJV
I had read these verses many times before I gave my heart and life to Jesus but I didn’t know what they meant. I had been told many times that I was a sinner and was going to hell if I wasn’t saved. I didn’t know that Jesus loved me because nobody had ever told me. I just knew that I didn’t want to go to hell.
It is very important that we give the plan of salvation when we are witnessing but how will they know that Jesus loves them if we don’t tell them that He loves them and then prove to them that He loves them by our kind and loving words and actions. Everyone needs to know that Jesus loves them.
Just as we need to know that our Saviour loves us, Jesus also needs to know that we love Him. When is the last time you told Jesus that you love Him? He tells us that He loves us every day. If you will listen with your heart, you will hear Him say to you, “I love you so much I died for you.”
Heavenly Father, thank You for Jesus. Precious Saviour, thank You for loving me so much that You died on the cross for my sins. I love You, Heavenly Father. I love You, Jesus. I love You, Holy Spirit. May we always tell people how much Jesus loves them and then prove it to them. In Jesus’ Name, I pray. Amen.
