For God So Loved: John 3:16

For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life.

Daily Reflection

As music speaks to the soul, we reflect on one of the most well-known texts in scripture through the words of a well-known anthem.  So Loved The World (Stainer)-Choir of St John’s College, Cambridge

God so loved the world, God so loved the world,

that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoso believeth, believeth in Him

should not perish, should not perish, but have everlasting life.

For God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world,

God sent not His Son into the world to condemn the world;

But that the world through Him might be saved.

God so loved the world, God so loved the world,

that He gave his only begotten Son, that whoso believeth, believeth in Him

should not perish, should not perish, but have everlasting life,

everlasting life, everlasting, everlasting life.

God so loved the world, God so loved the world, God so loved the world.

Daily Prayer

Heavenly Father, we thank You for Your great love, in the gift of your Son Jesus who came not as a judge but as a Saviour, promising eternal life through our belief in him.    Help us to open our hearts to the joy of your love and let us share that joy with others. Amen.
