John 3:16 (KJV)
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

The word for love above is “agapao” meaning, “to welcome, to entertain, to be fond of, to love dearly.” God greatly loved all those in the world and His love was magnified even more by His willingness to give His son’s life for others. God’s intent was to provide everlasting life and fellowship with Him and put aside the law.

Someone once asked what one word would sum up my life? How do you describe the whole of someone’s life with just one word? If you pick a word you might leave out the other good qualities of that person. Or it may be the intent to leave out all the undesirable things by only focusing on the good. But no matter how you look at it a person is the sum of all their good and bad qualities. So when God looks at us to sum up our lives in one word, the word would be LOVED. God loves us despite our failures and weaknesses. God loves us in the good moments and the bad. In fact the Bible says there is nothing that can separate us from His love. So how would you sum up your life? Do you know you are loved by our heavenly father? Thank God for His love that He gave His son Jesus so we could have eternal life with God, always loved by Him.
