It's God's Love #1

I am starting a new Sunday Series.

There will be a simple, short post each week
consisting of a Bible Verse around the topic of
God's Love and I would be very pleased if you
would join me to take some time to reflect on this each Sunday.

 Today I would like to start with a very well known verse that I have often taught children.

John 3 v 16

Love of God

through the

Son of God

is the Gift of God with

the cross at the centre and

offers us new

 Life with God.

The main theme through the whole of the Bible (Yes, including ALL of the Old Testament) is Jesus.

God's Word points to the Saviour of the World at all times, focusing us on the only one we should put our trust in because of God's Love for us.


  1. He moves in your life with love and patience. He knows the beginning from the end. Your times are in His hands. You find your place in Him. With hands outstretched accept His words of encouragement, His hand of correction and His touch of acceptance. He covers you with His love. You are under the shadow of the Sovereign.

  2. I helped my 4 year old memorize this scripture in our living room 2 years ago. She was given it as an assignment in children's church. Repeating it over and over with her impacted me greatly. The words through repetition sunk into my bones. Good stuff Sandra, and thanks so much for sharing with the #GiveMeGrace community!

    1. So true Lisha, It gets deep inside and works miracles in us.

  3. Thanks Sandy. We all need a reminder of perfect love. It is something I still cannot fathom, but am so grateful for!

  4. AMEN, Sandra. I always need that reminder-- and love that you shared it over at #EverydayJesus. THANK YOU :-)

  5. It's just a bit of scripture, but a whole lifetime of Truth. Thanks for sharing!!

  6. Oh, this promises to be a precious series! I look forward to reading more. Thank you for the reminder of His perfect everlasting love in this world of neither. Blessings!

  7. It's a huge blessing when He uses us to share and share and open hearts and reach into their lives. You're obviously filled with the desire to break into the lives and hearts and spirits. Thank you.

  8. I love a photo and quiet reflection for Sundays! Thanks for sharing this with us at Testimony Tuesday, Sandra. Sorry it took me so long to get over here...the end of last week was cuh-razy for me! Thanks again.

  9. I always love the series you do, Sandra. And writing on God's Love . . . such a wonderful choice!!! Thank you for sharing with Three Word Wednesday. Blessings to you. xoxo

    1. Thanks Beth, Simple on Sundays just on the word - I feel that's important.

  10. One of my favorite passage of scripture of Sandra!


    Does the term"Children of God" include all mankind, regardless of religious belief? Is universal salvation a factual concept? God loves everyone, however, there are requirements and conditions to be accepted as "Children of God."

    John 1:12 But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name.

    Only those who believe in Jesus have the right to become children of God.

    Galatians 3:26-27 For you are sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. 27 For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ.

    It is through faith in Christ and being baptized into Christ that men become children of God.

    Mark 16:16 He who has believed and has been baptized shall be saved; but he who has disbelieved shall be condemned.

    Those who have believed in Jesus and have been baptized are "children of God."

    Acts 4:10-12 let it be known to all of you and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead---by this name this man stands here before you in good health. 11 He is the stone which was rejected by you, the builders, but which became the chief corner stone. 12 And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved.

    Only those who have been washed by the blood of Jesus Christ are "children of God."




    1. Hello Steve, although I have allowed this comment to go through I do realise that this is not a comment on my post but actually simply one of your blog posts copied out here.
      I am sorry you felt you had to do this as it would have been much nicer to meet you through a proper conversation.
      As it is may I just say that my reflection on the verse about God's love was leaving the reader with the offer and then it is the responsibility of each person whether they accept God's salvation or reject it. But it is our responsibility to let them know God's love is there and His Salvation is offered.
