Learning That I’m Worth Being Found

In review of John 3:16 it says, “For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.”

Bottom Line:
God loved and cared so much that he gave up his Son. Whoever believes in the Son will not perish but have eternal life.

What this means to me:
God loved and cared for for me so much, that he gave his one and only Son, so that as I believe in him I will not perish but have eternal life. There’s a difference between losing something and misplacing something. If I misplace something, it means it wasn’t important to me. But if I lose it, it’s valuable enough for me to try to find it. I would misplace a pen; but I’d lose my glasses. Likewise, people are only lost if they’re worth finding. The value of a masterpiece doesn’t go down when it’s lost; it goes up. I can lose a lot if I’m not connected to God. I’d lose my direction, God’s protection, my potential, my happiness, and my future home in Heaven. But there’s one thing I wouldn’t lose: my value. God loves me enough to send his very best; Jesus. The most famous verse in the Bible says, “For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16 NLT). This verse tells me that I matter so much to God that he underwent a rescue mission to come and get me. He came to Earth as a little baby so that one day he could die on a wooden cross for my sin. Today’s verse reminds me of how valuable I am to God, the creator. I’m glad that I am spending time with him each day to get to know him more deeply. It is part of my role as a christian to share this simple truth with those who do not have a relationship with him.
