God’s very nature is love, making Him the perfect gift-giver. Nothing shows this more than His offering of His Son, Jesus. Examining the oft-quoted third chapter of John, Alistair Begg offers a fresh, biblical perspective on the object of God’s love and the purpose of His gift: it’s the broken, unworthy world of people that God adores, and He gave Jesus for its salvation. In response to this gift there can be no neutrality; we must either believe and be saved or remain in God’s wrath.
16“For God so loved the world,9 that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.
