For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him. John 3:16-17 NIV
I love when that word shows up in the Bible! It is a beautiful reminder that God is talking to everyone and anyone who will listen to His words. So often I hear people say that a relationship with God is exclusive. That it is for only a small group of people.
I would disagree. And that little word above is proof that a relationship with God is truly inclusive. He wants whoever to come join Him. Yes, like every good parent, He has boundaries set up for our relationship with Him. That keep us safe and healthy.
But God clearly wants whoever to be a part of His family. To share in the love He has for you, me, and whoever wants to be a part of His family.
So, whoever, if you are out there feeling lost and alone. You have an open invitation to come be a part of our family. You are loved!
