This may have become a common scripture mentioned from the Bible, but it’s words and meanings are stronger than ever. In John 3:16-17 (NIV), it reads “For God so loved the world that he gave his 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.” It later goes on, in scripture of John 10:28-30 (NIV) that speaks of Jesus’ own Words that were “I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all, and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father’s hand. I and the Father are one.”
Wow!! Praise His most precious and Holy Name. Our Heavenly Father, not only sent His Son (Jesus) to die for our sins, but to also help save us through his son. What man on earth, or statue, do you know can replicate what Jesus has done for us? Then it goes on by mentioning that we (our spirits) can never be snatched away from God’s Hands because “Jesus and the Father are ONE”. What does this mean? It means that we are loved and are continually being loved by the Lord that could’ve just… condemned us since the beginning of sin with Adam and Eve (Book of Genesis) and during the current times that we are living in right now. His love for all of us is so much deeper that I can’t explain all of them in the correct words I really want to emphasize and elaborate upon.
He knows that we may have done wrong, but He is, and has been, already forgiving us. All that we have to do is believe in Jesus and accept Him within our hearts. If we believe in Him, get ready to experience a whole spiritual life change.
Yes, I agree that no one is perfect, but just take a step back for a second and think of how much grace and how many blessings that He is constantly rewarding us to have. Just being able to wake up and see God’s light, despite whatever the weather conditions may be, is nothing but a blessing for us to help give each us that push out of bed so that we can take on the hours of our days ahead.
In my picture posted, that is a spirit hugging the Lord, and the meaning of it, in my opinion, is that Jesus welcomed him with opened arms. All it takes is a comforting hug to help ease your fears and relax you.
