16 “For this is how God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. 17 God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through him. NLT
At the very center of God's great love for the world is His Fatherheart. That is why He sent His one and only Son to be His expressed image of love (Hebrews 1:3) to a fallen world that needed a Savior.
It was through Jesus' life on earth that He revealed just how much His Father loved us and would sacrifice all that He loved in order to gain our love (Romans 8:31-32). So when we think of the much loved John 3:16 verse that says 'For God so loved the world...', may we all remember that the God Jesus came to reveal was His Father.
